Can you only remove files that you added yourself from the repository?

Hiya. I'm trying to remove a couple of outdated files from the source code of my project, but I always get this error when attempting to commit the removal:

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: TF14045: The identity SND\MasterSlowPoke is not a recognized identity.

That username is exactly my identity, however. I have no problems adding new files or removing those new files form the repository. Is this because I'm only a developer and not a coordinator? The user who originally added those files I want to delete is no longer active and I'd rather not track him down.

Try entering your username as: SND\MasterSlowPoke_cp

If you are using the v2 version it requires the _cp at the end, though the latest SvnBridge version from source should add it for you so you don't need to remember it.

That is the name I'm using for both the working adding/removal and the non-working removal of old files. The error message seems to drop it.

Oh, it looks like I was looking at the wrong errors. Whoops.

Here's the real error:

The item $/q3libxna/Fusion/Fusion.sln is locked for check-out by aanandn_cp in workspace MEZIAH

Is there any way to unlock it? He hasn't been active for over a year and I'm not seeing any options with TortoiseSVN.

Anyone? There has to be some way to disable his checkout.

I'm on the CodePlex team and have taken care of this for you. Should be good to go now.
