That's an error thrown by the Subversion library. I admit it's not
really explaining what you should do here.

Since you have added the file already to version control but not yet
committed, simply deleting it won't work. You have to 'revert' the
addition to version control.
Now that the file is already gone:
* select the parent folder of that file
* right-click, choose "revert" from the TSVN menu
* in the revert dialog, select the file (which is missing) and hit "ok"

I'm not sure what you mean here. If you have a working copy on machine
A, then you automatically have all folders.
