I have VisualSVN Server running on Windows 7 64-bit. The repository is located in C:\Repositories. When I try to access it over HTTPS, I get the following error:

Could not open the requested SVN filesystem, error code 500 # 720005.

I've tried giving the admin user full rights to the repository directory, but that doesn't work. The only way I can get access over HTTPS is if I give everyone full rights, which is obviously unsafe.

How can I grant access to the repository only to specific users?

I have also tried freeing the respective directories with full access to the user "Netzwerkdienst" (= network service) which doesn't work too. Just freeing the directories for the user "Jeder" (=Everyone) works.

VisualSVN likely runs as the LOCAL SERVICE system account, have you tried giving that access? –  themel Feb 21 '13 at 16:24
    
Nope! VisualSVN Server service runs under 'Network Service' account by default. –  bahrep Feb 21 '13 at 20:59
    
Check server log. What events get generated there? See visualsvn.com/support/topic/00028 –  bahrep Feb 21 '13 at 21:00
