No, please don't do that. You should never change or remove the .svn
directory. You can get away with it in a single level hierarchy, but not
in subfolders.

Firstly, to recover from the obstructed state, remove the Build folder
completely, then update the parent folder.

If you want to keep the Build folder and its contents, first export it
to a temporary location. As these are generated files, you probably
don't need to bother.

TortoiseSVN->Delete the Build folder and commit.

If you exported the Build folder, you can now bring it back as an
unversioned folder. Or do another build and recreate it.

TortoiseSVN->AddToIgnoreList the Build folder and commit.
