Windows XP "System Restore" and Subversion

Subversion users be aware: Windows XP "System Restore" will rollback your SVN working folder!

Just learned it the hardway. I did a system restore on my Windows XP box, and all of sudden all the projects are broken. It turned out that all my SVN working folders are rolled back too.

  1. Checkout "Head" from SVN repo again. Lucky for me, I do check-in frequently, and this solution works for me just fine;
  2. Start "System Restore", and this time select "Undo my last restoration";
