Subject SVN errors with junction points
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2011 16:18:11 GMT
Our SVN checkout is too big to fit on my small SSD harddisk, so I have
spread it over two harddisks using Windows 7 junction points. However, this
gives me weird SVN errors. These folders are my situation:

D:\SVN\BigFolder >> junction point towards E:\SVN\BigFolder

I want to use the SVN entirely through d:\SVN and just pretent everything is
there. Windows Explorer does that exactly, but SVN gives me weird errors:

-When I try to update D:\SVN\BigFolder, I get this error: "D:\SVN\BigFolder
has no ancestry information".

-When I try to commit a file that is in D:\SVN\Bigfolder, I get this error:
"Commit failed (details follow): Entry for D:\SVN\BigFolder has no URL. Try
a CleanUp. If that doesn't work you need to do a fresh chackout."

I found a topic on the newsgroups that said SVN doesn't support creating and
removing junction points, but I am just trying to submit a file inside an
already existing junction point.

Interestingly, I have several other folders like BigFolder, and some work,
while some others don't. Also, which works and which doesn't seems to
randomly change sometimes.

So, what is going wrong here and how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance!

With kind regards,
