If the modified files you want to keep are checked into the repository
and the repository is up to date then do
"Export" of the folder of files you want to pull from revision control
to a safe location away from your current WC.
"SVN Delete" of the unwanted WC folder.
Commit the deleted folder.

Voila!
Don't forget, that the folder of files remain in the repository in
revisions earlier that the revision generated by your commit so if you
checkout or revert to an earlier rev they will pop up in the WC again.
