2 ways:

(Risky, tedious) Delete all .svn directories from the WC
(Much safer) Export the directory to another location, delete the WC,
then move the exported copy back.

Be aware that any changes made since your last commit will probably
NOT make it to the exported copy.

This is easier from the command line (unless I'm missing something in
TSVN), as you can cd into the WC directory, run "svn export ." and
it'll clean everything up for you.
