Subversion, error: svn

Hey Guys,  I'm getting an error trying to do subversioning after I removed a directory.  I can 'Commit' just fine, but when I try to update, I get...
"svn: Working copy '/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/pw/yui' locked; try performing 'cleanup' "

When I try doing the 'Cleanup Project' or 'Subversion' > 'cleanup' I still get the error.

The directory exists on my hard drive, but doesn't show in my IDE in PHP Storm.
If I delete the directory 'yui' from my hard drive and 'Update', the directory is re-created on the hard drive, but still doesn't show up in PHP Storm.  I then try to create it in PHP Storm, but fails and complains that it already exsits.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
Jay

means someon on your team locked a file when they cheked it out and you can't commit that file untill they unlock it. Find out who checkd out the file and locked it. BTW locking a file is a bit of an antipattern since subversion "technically" makes this unnecessary.

Thanks Edgar, I'm new to this and I didn't even think about the possibility of file locking.
