This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


There is an option in TortoiseSVN | Settings | Icon Overlays | Overlay Handlers. See TortoiseSVN manual for further details.

To remove icon overlays, do this:

Click on an empty area near that directory path. Right click Tortoise SVN settings, go to Icon Overlay, and uncheck Show Icon Overlay for ignored items. It's all done; all icon overlays of the folder are gone.

If it is already revisoned then do this: go to that directory / file. Right click Properties of Tortoise SVN. Select the list item "add it to ignore list". Don't be afraid the file won't get deleted!! AND then repeat the above procedure.

@Danijel did this help to solve that. – cc4re Sep 21 '12 at 7:15
I don't remember. :-( There is no more overlays, but how I resolved it I don't remember since it was a long ago. Sorry. – Danijel Sep 12 '13 at 7:48
