We have an SVN repository we access using Tortoise. The host machine is a Windows 7 PC.
Today I went to make a commit of a file change and got the following error:
**Commit failed (details follow): Can't move '\\gary-pc\Users\Public\ST365_R1_SVN\db\transactions\836-nr.txn\svn-5955FEDD' to '\\gary-pc\Users\Public\ST365_R1_SVN\db\transactions\836-nr.txn\props': The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. Additional errors: Transaction '836-nr' cleanup failed Can't remove directory '\\gary-pc\Users\Public\ST365_R1_SVN\db\transactions\836-nr.txn': The directory is not empty.**
I have rebooted the hosting computer. No joy. The SW developer who installed this is no longer with the company so I am the SVN administrator. GULP.
There are no other users on the computer at present.
I have found no good way to google this problem and so I have come here.
Is there some sort of clean up I need to do from a CMD window on the host?
If it is a permission problem how do I check?
Not sure when the host computer may have taken Windows update(s).
