When trying to "add" or "commit" files to an existing repository, I get the following message:

Command: Commit  
Error: Commit failed (details follow):  
Error: 'F:\Web Sites\Spokane Tribal College\Files' is not under version control and is  
Error: not part of the commit, yet its child 'F:\Web Sites\Spokane Tribal  
Error: College\Files\plus.gif' is part of the commit  
Finished!:  

How do I fix this?

I guess you are trying to do file check in to a version control program. If the folder Files is not under the version control program create the folder and add files. Then you can check out and commit again. Otherwise give us more information.

I was trying to do a "commit".  Some of the files in the folder already exist in the SVN repository.  All of the files have blue question marks next to them.

Should I delete what's in the SVN repo, then add the files again?

Blue question mark will come only if the files are not available in the repository and available in you local working folder. You can straight away add the files to get it done.

Also please don't delete from repository unless you know you have backup of the folder somewhere.
