Subversion Error Message on Windows 7/Windows 2008 Server

Some times when I am performing a Subversion task (update, commit, check out) I get an error message stating that files can’t be moved or deleted. A subsequent boot of my machine causes CHKDSK to run (this is what concerned me).

The error message looks like this:

Error: Can't move
Error: '[...]\.svntmpentries'
Error: to
Error: '[...]\.svnentries':
Error: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

This is a known issue with Windows 7 and you can http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982927/en-us”>download a Hot Fix to fix it.

This issue is also addressed in Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008.

Here is a good post on the issue: http://serverfault.com/questions/72561/64-bit-tortoisesvn-on-windows-7-says-file-or-directory-is-corrupted-and-unreadab
