I have been unable to find a way to remove a file/folder from being managed
by version control. What I want to do is to copy a folder(s) from a
'checked out' project on my local drive and somehow stop those copied files
from being managed by Tortoise - i.e. remove the little checkmarks next to
the file names.


So far the only way I have been able to do it is to delete all the .SVN
folders. This seems to do the trick, but is cumbersome when I have dozens
of nested folders that I am copying.


I tried the 'export' feature, but that will not let me select just the 4 or
5 folders that I want.


In the help under "C.1. TortoiseSVN Commands" I saw the entry for "remove
Removes the file(s) in /path from version control.". However I was unable
to get the command to work from the .bat file I made.


The reason I need to do this is for CD-ROM mastering. Since my CD-ROMs
often have thousands of files on them (that are duplicates of other files
that are being managed via SVN) I do not want to have my "CD-ROM" folder
managed. I also do not want to burn all the hidden .SVN folders onto the
CD-ROM master. I need a way to get a data folder containing XML files in
dozens of nested folders cleaned up and ready to put on a CD-ROM - i.e.
remove all the .SVN folders from the files.


I am on Windows XP Pro and I use Nero to Master my CD-ROMs.


If someone has an answer for me I would appreciate it.
