Delete folder from local disc but not from repository and update should not restore it

I want to remove a versioned folder from the local working copy, but do not want to delete it from the repository. Further more if I make an "update" on a parent folder, Tortoise should not tell me that the folder is "missing" but should ignore it.

I think this must be possible because the following works fine:
1. I have checked out the root directory of the repository, "only this item".
2. I select a folder deep in the structure of the repository and "Update Item to revision" -> "Fully recursive". Tortoise only creates the path to this folder without any siblings.
3. I repeat step 2 for several folders.
4. An "update" at the top most folder of the working copy only updates the selected folders and their subfolders but does not check out any sibling.

Now the problem occurs: I cannot remove one of the folders I checked out in step 2 from my local working copy. Because as soon as I remove it and I redo step 4, I get the information that the deleted folder is missing and Tortoise recreates it.

Is it possible that I remove a folder from the local working copy?

Thanks in advance for your answers,
