My TortoiseSVN project was working fine until yesterday. But today when I tried to commit it, got below error message. I am pretty sure I haven't deleted that file myself. Any ideas to recover it / some other workaround?

TortoiseSVN 1.6.16, Build 21511 - 32 Bit , 2011/06/01 19:00:35 Subversion 1.6.17, apr 1.3.12 apr-utils 1.3.12 neon 0.29.6 OpenSSL 1.0.0d 8 Feb 2011 zlib 1.2.5 I am running it on Windows-7. I have a dual-boot system (other OS Ubuntu)

Preface: Using file:/// access-level for Subversion is always bad idea for any longer than few transactions task

Face: If you lost file, you have to repair it

The "txn-current" file is a file with a single line of text that contains only a base-36 number. The current value will be used in the next transaction name, along with the revision number the transaction is based on. This sequence number ensures that transaction names are not reused, even if the transaction is aborted and a new transaction based on the same revision is begun.

tells us Subversion own repo

Recipe from accepted answer for "svn commit problem, Cannot read 'd:\UC\db\txn-current': End of file found" (svnadmin verify + svnadmin recover) is perfectly valid and usable also

Thanks .. I'm not able to understand what is meant by "file:/// access-level". What have I done wrong? How to make it right? Also I can't find svnadmin.exe in my PC anywhere .. Should I reinstall tortoiseSVN? – user13107 Oct 28 '12 at 10:42
