TortoiseSVN Subversion error "\ is not a working copy"
Today I got the following Subversion message via TortoiseSVN while I wanted to commit some changes.
\ is not a working copy
It took me a while to figure this out but it has to do with the fact that I subst the root of the branch to my S: drive. When I went to my user folder (c:\users\ramon\src\*) and performed a commit it just worked as expected.
The reason for the substition is that when I compile the sources that the S: drive paths are embedded into the PDB files. When another developer then attaches the debugger to any of the applications then he only needs to have the same substitution to find all source code files. Besides that, it doesn't matter on which project I work on and no matter which drive or folder the paths stay the same. This is especially usefull as I am a console and keyboard junkie.
