You can not use an existing working copy to commit. The reason is that every
repository has a unique ID, and the working copy knows the ID of the
repository it belongs to.

Now, in addition to Rafael's answer, if you really deleted the repository, you
can create a new one and import your project in its current state into it.
Of course, that will not import the history of your project, because that was
stored in the deleted repository.

In order to do the import, simply export the project from the old working copy
first and then import it into the new repository. While exporting, you should
consider local files you don't want imported and also files changed locally,
where I don't know if you want to import those changes, too.

BTW: Set up a backup system, Subversion doesn't do that for you. Also, you
should set up a Subversion server, so you don't need file access. The reason
for this is that you can not destroy anything with a mere client, which
provides some additional protection against mistakes.
