[TSVN] Using Diff for Non-SVN directories ?

From: Warren Kinny <wjkinny_at_resmaster.com>

A relative newcomer to Tortoise SVN but yes I have read
lots of help and searched archives before asking this question :)

Is there a way to use SVN's diff between two directories where
one is the files checked-out from the repository and one is just
a pre-existing local copy (with no .svn structure, but the identical
tree structure and files as the checked-out directory) ?

I am trying to avoid having to commit the local copies
to the repository just to find out what is different and then
rolling everything back, and I also did not want to compare
on a file by file basis. (I like solutions that scale :)

I tried using the method described in an old post of selecting both
directories within windows explorer and then just running Tortoise
Diff but it returns an "Access denied" error after opening the
Diff window. I suspect that method will only work for files,
not whole directories ?

Any and all help greatly appreciated !
