Drop object should not be drop from SVN
If someone drop a object and commit it, we lost the object in SVN and the history of it.
You need to found a workaround like Rename _DROP
Dropped objects are no longer in the latest version in source control, but they are still in the previous versions. In SVN, if you “show log,” on the directory level, you should be able to find the dropped object. You can right-click on it and “show log” again to get the entire history for that dropped object.
@Mike - would you be able to email this issue to email@example.com as it sounds like something we need to resolve?

Drops are failing locally. Get latest attempts to drop the tables, but is unsuccessful.
A similar issue was raised on our support forum: http://www.red-gate.com/messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=10369&highlight=delete I'm copying ceacl's post here because I think it's right on (Thank you, ceacl):
Think of your repository as a snapshot of your system at any given time. Like a timeline. When you drop an object and commit that drop to the repository your HEAD (latest) revision will not contain that object definition and therefore represents the current state of your system.
If you want to travel back in time to before the object was dropped you can certainly do that in any number of ways. My preferred choice is to use TortoiseSVN to either browse to a previous revision in the repository or browse to the object in question using TortoiseSVN browser and do a Show Log on the directory. This method shows a complete history of changes made to that object.
Anything that gets committed to your repository is there forever. There is no way to delete it from the repository short of deleting the entire repository. You may not see the object definitions you deleted if you're looking at the HEAD revision but you can see it if you go back in time to a prior revision.
Hope that helps.
