If you don't want to manually delete them all, an option is to do a "find
.svn" and delete the matching folders
Windows: find all files and folders, check 'hidden files also'
*nix: something like "find your_folder -name .svn | xargs rm" [use with
care, I did not check this]

This will not replace the local files with the ones from the repository.
