Are you sure you mean update? Or did you mean commit? I'll assume you
added this new folder using TSVN and meant "commit" but you should
careful to provide better instructions.

How are you deleting? If you're using Windows Explorer to delete "New
Folder" you need to read the manual again. Start here:

Now I'm really confused! You say you're doing update but the error
message says "commit"!

My guess is that you're coming from a CVS background where these terms
have different meanings. If so, try this link:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.forcvs and
try again.
