Creating copies of project with full folder structure leads to misbehaviour when commiting

I've checked out a folder from SVN with Tortoise using Windows
Explorer. In that project folder, I've got several sub folders and
complete directory structures in the subfolders.
In my case, it is
which is pointing to the repository path

Now I want to create a copy of the existing project to create a NEW
project. That's why I copy the folder using WinExplorer, assign the
new, correct name

Then I want to commit my new project to the SVN repository. The
problem is, that the .svn folders are copied as well and there the SVN
path has kept to be the "old" project
Tortoise doesn't realize that the SVN path doesn't match the current
folder name "project_CustomerABC" any more and thinks all is fine. But
it should now target to

The current workaround is to remove all .svn-folders in all the
subdirectories, but this task is very boring if I must do it every and
every time again I have to create a new project.

1. I hoped that after a full checkout (or cleanup) of the repository
to my local disc, it detects that there are some "invalid" .svn
folders not matching the current repository and removes the wrong .svn
folders and keeps the other file data so that a next checkin adds the
new files
2. there is a possibility for me to force a cleanup of the .svn
folders somehow else with a 1-click-solution
First choice would be the best one :-)

Thanks for any feedback/ideas!
