SVN Update sometimes won't bring new files to working copy???

SVN Update sometimes won't bring new files to working copy???

SVN Update sometimes won't bring new files to working copy???

Using TortoiseSVN OR AnkhSVN the update action sometimes won't bring new added files (by the other developers) from the repo into any of the other developer's working copy.
The log for the update action shows the additions but the actual files won't be in the updated directory.
I also tried to update to the specific version where the files where added, first fully recursive and nothing, then at the working copy level and it showed the additions in the log but the files were not in the folder either.
I have just now tried checking the folder out into the same destination and this did bring the new files, but I don't think this should be the standard procedure since this would overwrite any changes that I would have made to files on this folder.
Any ideas as to why is this happening and how to solve it??

RE: SVN Update sometimes won't bring new files to working copy???

Don't you get any error messages? I can imagine that this is a file permissions issue, but I would expect error messages in that case. I had a "case" issue myself, where two file names only differed in the first character being upper and lower case. This brings problems on Windows, as it is not case sensitive. However, TortoiseSVN did its fair share of complaining when this occurred.

Have you tried what the command-line svn command does in such a case? Does it give an error or a warning? What does "svn status" say in such a case (does it report missing files)?
