In the Subversion properties for the folder, try setting svn:ignore to just *

That will ignore anything in the folder.

Note that, despite the way it is displayed in the top box, the ignore
patterns in the text entry box must be newline separated if you have more
than one.

The other thing to note is that the 'recursive' box is NOT a flag... All
it does is allow you to set one property recursively down all folders as a
one-off operation.

To do all bin and obj folders, even ones which haven't been created yet,
you'll need to look at the global ignore settings (which are local to a
wc, not project based).

Hope that helps,
