You can find out which repository directory a particular SVN local directory
is referencing by right-clicking, going into the TortoiseSVN submenu and
choosing Repo Browser. A TortoiseSVN setting ( TortoiseSVN sub-menu |
Settings | Look and Feel | Context Menu ) lets you put the TortoiseSVN
submenu Repo Browser directly in your right-clicked main menu. A good
suggestion to the TortoiseSVN people on the NG might be to put the full
repository path referenced by an SVN local directory directly on the
right-click submenu, at least as an option, to make it even easier to see
what repository path an SVN local directory references.
