SVN merge loses files and code

I'm trying to merge trunk change-set into a branch, but have found out a lot of post-merge issues, including whole files that disappeared, and missing code blocks

I'm using SVN 1.6 for both clients and server. Tried this with multiple clients - Eclipse, Netbeans and SVN - the result is the same.

Can someone advice how sort it out, and most important, prevent code loss?

Thanks in advance!


I'm not sure what your issue is, but svn generally shouldn't lose anything unless you tell it to. When in doubt, save an "svn diff" off to a file somewhere outside your repository until your changes are checked in as you wish.

In the end, I used the CollabNet merge client which did the job automatically.

Apparently it was a clear case of me missing the revision numbers multiple times.
