To do that, remove all .svn folders from the working copy (these are hidden
folders, which are not shown by default in Explorer). Do a right click and
'Search..' for .svn (include the dot!). Sort the results, select all .svn
folders and <Shift>-<Delete> them.

Or you can try to do a right click and 'TortoiseSVN->Export...' to copy all
files elsewhere. But this may fail if the working copy is not 100% ok.
