SVN Commit failed: `Can`t copy ... Input/output error`

I was getting "Commit failed: `Can`t copy ... Input/output error`" when trying to commit a particular file into my repository. I am running OS X and have my repository stored on an External Drive and my working copies on an SMB Volume via Windows Network.

The odd thing about this was that other files would commit fine but this one particular file would not, unfortunately, I couldn`t find the answer to this so a quick and dirty method that seems to have remedied the problem for now was to make a copy of the file in question, remove it using SVN, create a new file with the same name as the old one, and copy the code back into the newly created file and commit that back in.

It`s not the best solution but it seems to do the trick.

I use SVNX under OS X as my SVN management tool.
