I use Tortoise.

Here are the relevant version bits:
TortoiseSVN 1.8.8, Build 25755 - 64 Bit , 2014/08/10 14:44:06
Subversion 1.8.10, -release
apr 1.5.1
apr-util 1.5.3
serf 1.3.7
OpenSSL 1.0.1i 6 Aug 2014
zlib 1.2.8

According to https://subversion.apache.org/download/ ... ed-release, The best available version of Apache Subversion is: 1.8.10
so I have upgraded.

When I try to access a check out area which was upgraded by Tortoise to be compatible with release 1.8.x with Source Control Oracle 2 (a checkout working area created through the tool),
it reports this:

Failed to recover from 'C:UsersARMarshallAppDataLocalRed GateSource Control for Oracle 2WorkingBaseszijk2dul.jzp' is not a working copy directory

I did not re-checkout....

even though when I navigate there with Windows Explorer and noodle around with Tortoise, no errors are encountered and svn update does nothing which indicates the checkout is up-to-date....

    Here is what an svn update from tortoise reports:
    Command: Update  
    Updating: C:UsersARMarshallAppDataLocalRed GateSource Control for Oracle 2WorkingBasesz5ek1fhm.2kh  
    Completed: At revision: 22  
    Updating: C:UsersARMarshallAppDataLocalRed GateSource Control for Oracle 2WorkingBaseszijk2dul.jzp

    Yes unfortunately we're locked to 1.7 currently due to a bug in the x64 version of SharpSVN 1.8 which can cause an un-catchable exception when authentication fails.

    I was considering putting an option in to allow using 1.8 (at your own risk) turned off by default - how does that sound?
