No
So another way is to copy just the wanted folder(s) and files to another
location.
Then manually delete all the contained and normally hidden .svn folders
from the copy so it's physically the same as if you had exported them
from the repository.

When you right click on a versioned folder or file you should see a menu
item "SVN Delete".
If not it may be necessary to then click the TortoiseSVN menu item to
expand the full range of menu items.

Remember, after marking files for deletion from the repository it is
necessary to commit the change for it to take full effect.
