Tortoise SVN - How to determine which SVN repository a directory is using

Posted on 2012-09-11
Last Modified: 2012-10-01
I am running Tortoise SVN version 1.7.9.  In older versions, I was able to easily figure out which repository my local directories were using by right clicking the directory and selecting "Properties".  The Windows properties dialog box would appear and there would be a tab labeled "Subversion".  If I clicked on "Subversion" the screen would show me the URL of the repository that the directory was checked out from.  However, in version 1.7.9 if I right click on "Properties", the windows dialog box pops up but there is no "Subversion" tab.  How can I find the URL of the repository in use on version 1.7.9?

    I have the subversion tab in the properties window.
    Anyway the simplest way to get the URL is to right click and select commit option/menu (few other options are also possible). The URL is displayed on the top of the window.
    Don't commit until you want to.

    Thanks, rushtoshankar, but I don't even get the SVN context menu when I right-click on this folder.  I did more research and discovered that I needed to use an older version of SVN.  Once I installed version 1.6, everything works fine.

    How did you install 1.7.9? The installer does the unistallation of older version for you. But to make sure, uninstall the current version. Reboot the machine. Install 1.7.9 then see. I hope things should be fine. I am running windows 7. Updated from 1.7.7 to 1.7.9 without reboot/uninstallation of previous one. It is fine.

    I installed 1.7.9 on a new machine without any prior versions of SVN.  When this didn't work, I uninstalled it and installed 1.6.  That's all.
