There are hidden '.svn' folders in every working copy folder. If you
just copied some folders from one working copy to another, you also
copied those folders.

Instead of copying those folders, right-drag them in Explorer, then
choose "SVN Export" from the context menu.

Or you could manually delete the hidden .svn folders...
