You simply can copy the file from the repository back to your working
copy, there's no need to do a reverse merge here (if the file was
accidentally removed). You only need to do reverse-merges if you want
to undo some *changes*.

The equivalent for the CL client would be:
svn copy http://mydomain.com/svn/repo/trunk/removedfolder@100
path/to/workingcopy/removedfolder
