You can't revert a deleted folder, because when you deleted that folder,
you also deleted the .svn folder within. And that .svn folder contains
the information needed to revert/restore changes.
You have to checkout or update your working copy again.

The problem with screwed up working copies after a failed update due to
files being locked by other applications, that's a Subversion issue and
should be fixed already on trunk.
