The right way is as you have been instructed, just delete them.
The following step is rarely, if ever necessary for me but might work

Try killing TSVNCache using TaskManager then delete the unwanted folder
without exploring into it.
If that fails then you have something else grabbing file handles. Maybe
a virus scanner?
