Tip: Delete Unversioned Items

Having multiple branches of a project or multiple projects checked out makes it easier to quickly switch between them. But, one disadvantage of keeping multiple working copies checkout is that the temporary obj and binaries hog a lot of hard disk space, this becomes a major problem if you are using a SSD and don’t have a ton of free space.

Tortoise SVN can help you remove all the temporary files and reclaim that precious disk space, just right click on the working copy while holding the shift key down and choose “delete unversioned items”, this will display all the unversioned items and allow you to delete them.


Just make sure to uncheck “Use recycle bin”
