Easy fix for “SVN: Delta Source Ended Unexpectedly” Error
I tried to update one of my subversion working copies today and got the following message:
“Delta source ended unexpectedly”
Here’s how I solved the problem:
Step 1: I identified the file that was causing the problem.
Step 2: I made sure that all changed files in the problem file’s directory were committed to the repository.
Step 3: I deleted the problem file’s directory from my working copy (not the repository!)
Step 4: I updated my entire working copy
Easy! I spent around half an hour searching for an answer and reading through several message board threads on the topic. The fix took me about three minutes to complete. Hope this is helpful for someone.
