Delete local, keep repository copy?

I have a lot of branches of a project stored on my PC. I want to keep them
in the repo, but delete them from the local drive. I know that if I just
delete them, they'll show up as deleted in the next commit, which is what I
don't want. The only other way I can think of is deleting the entire folder
containing all the branches, trunk and tags and then re-checkout just the
folders I want, but that'll take an age over the slow network connection.

Is there any way I can delete the local directory, and then tell SVN that I
know it's missing, so don't bug me? I'm guessing I could go into
.svn/entries and remove the directories manually so SVN doesn't think they
exist locally, then delete the local copies, but I'd rather not do that for
risk of damaging the data.
