Greetings rgb192,

As the moderator said, we need more information. There are many kind of errors that Tortoise can show, for instance, "The name of the directory is not valid".

Now, may I ask why are you trying to create a SVN repo? Not that it matters, but let me suggest you free hosted services that are better than having a local repo that may as well die if something ever happens to your workstation/server. All of these services can be upgraded for a small fee. I used projectlocker for a long time, and it's quite good; yet, now I'm a user of xp-dev.com and I'm quite happy about it.

Greetings rgb192,

Well, the only thing that comes up to my mind is that you don't have enough rights to create a repo. I just did a test in my C:/ drive with a new folder, right click >> Tortoise SVN >> Create New Repo here without any problem.

I even tried in a couple of folders in different places and got the same result. Ask your administrator to review the rights you have on the folder you are trying to write or at least try creating new folders around your drives until you find a location where you can create your repo.

Hope it helps.
Best regards,
-JJ
