Tortoise SVN Isssue with STS
I am using Tortoise SVN for version controlling. But i create all my projects in STS and then checkout from the folder in my Computer. When i import the project in my STS , all the .svn folders also get imported( naturally ).
Now the issue is , that STS , unknowingly , inadvertently , removes the 'entries' file from .svn folder , thereby corrupting it and locking the entire SVN repository branch.
PLease Check the issue.

I'm not sure why STS would be removing the entries file, that doesn't seem right.
Your best choice is to install some SVN tooling into STS. I'd recommend Subversive. It is available to install from the dashboard. Once you have it installed, then install an SVN connector (subversive will guide you through these steps). Finally, for each SVN project. right click -> Team -> Share Projects...
This will enable SVN tooling on your imported projects and the .svn folders will be hidden. Also, you will be able to issue SVN commands from inside of STS.
