Tortoise, by default, updates recursively. However, I need it to recursively update even when the directories down in the tree are not connected to the root directory.


  1. c:\A (file system) maps to http://rep/a (SVN)
  2. c:\A\B (file system) maps to http://rep/a/b (SVN)
  3. c:\A\B\C (file system) maps to http://rep/c (SVN)

See? If I update c:\A, by default, c:A\B\C won't be updated.

Is there a way to solve it?

You could consider using externals instead. – Daniel Beck Feb 16 '11 at 22:06

You could use svn hooks. More specifically you would need Post-update hook which has following parameters: PATH DEPTH REVISION ERROR CWD. You could decide whether to update c based on ERROR parameter, which should be empty if no error occurred. Additionally look at the sample client hook scripts from tortoise svn.
