I've created a directory on our SVN server and added a local directory with my project to it. It got uploaded and seems to be OK.

However, I didn't get those cute green (or any others) icons on the file. So I clicked on the project's directory and used "checkout". That wasn't good because I've downloaded ALL of the repository.

How can I synchronize my uploaded directory with it's corresponding directory on the server? (It's probably something easy that I've forgot to check in or so...)

Using "Checkout" is correct, but you have to select the directory you want instead of the repository root.

How can I do that? I only have the option of "checkout", no "checkout from..." or such. – Konrad Viltersten Oct 7 '12 at 15:42
Oh, wait, I think I've found it. You mean that I should open the repo browser and from there do a checkout to my local directory, right? Please say "yes", because I'm so proud I've found it... Now I have "SVN update" and "SVN commit" options in the directory. :) – Konrad Viltersten Oct 7 '12 at 15:55
Yes. Alternatively, choose "Checkout" in an empty directoy and then select a source directory from the repository. – CL. Oct 7 '12 at 17:05
+1 for a nice follow-up reply. In this case I had the stuff on my local computer first and wanted to upload them (which I did successfully). Then I got confused because the add-ons to the icons didn't show up. – Konrad Viltersten Oct 7 '12 at 17:55
