You don't have to do anything to the repository. It doesn't
'remember' that you checked anything out, so no harm. Locally,
there's a .svn folder you may not be seeing where you checked out your
working copy. Make sure you are set in Windows Explorer to see hidden
files and folders. Delete that folder, and you are done.
