Last Modified: 2020-06-02
I'm using windows laptop.  We have remote repository in internet.  My subversion client is TortoiseSVN.  

From File Explorer, I right click to checkout svn revision 578 from older_branch.  I want to update my working copy to svn revision 897 of recent_branch.  Is that possible?  If yes, How?  When I invoke SVN Update, my working copy is updated to latest revision from older_branch.  I need to update this working copy to latest on recent_branch.

Another words, my working copy was checkedout from svn revision 578 of older_branch.  I need to update this working copy to svn revision 897 of recent_branch.
