It sounds like you are using the command "cvs update -d".

This will attempt to remove directories that exist on the local copy that no 
longer exist (on this branch) on the server.

Are you using CVS or CVSNT?  CVSNT is open source but optimised for Windows 
servers and clients.  

It has a separate mailing list for reporting problems too.

Mailing list and download information is available at:

Subject:        problem with cvs trying to remove directories

I'm using wincvs on a win2k3 server and I'm having a problem.  When I
do an update, it updates the files and directories just fine, but it
keeps saying 

cvs server: cannot remove xxxxxxxx directory: Directory not empty

now, I don't want the directory removed and there are things inside it
that cvs updates just fine.  So why does it keep saying that after
every directory?

any help would be appreciated.
