Tortoise SVN Repository Creation: I get the wrong default folder structure

3594 views svn

I am on Windows 10. I am using TortoiseSVN Version 1.10. I create a folder "SVNRepository. Right Click on the folder>TortoiseSVN>Create Repository Here. enter image description here so far so good. I click OK and then I get the following default structure instead of the structure trunk/branches/tag

enter image description here

What did I do wrong?

Thank you

This is the actual repository itself, not your working directory. The directory you're looking at is where subversion will store all of your version history, logs, source code, etc in it's own database format (a series of deltas).

Using the file:///C:/Path/to/my/repo you will find the actual directory structure of your repository. Typically the workflow will be that you develop on the trunk of your repository. So do an svn checkout on file:///C:/Path/to/my/repo/trunk and you can begin there.
