In every directory mapped to the svn repository, there is a hidden .svn
directory. Delete that and you remove the link between your local drive
and the server.

If you have sub-directories too, they will also have a .svn directory.
If you don't want to manually delete them all, you can use the export
command to extract file to the working folder which will remove the .svn
directories. That will, of course, replace the local files with the ones
from the repository as well.
