Woah Bob, slow down. You're fixing the symptoms without first finding
out what the problem is. The impression I get is that a file was
copied temporarily to check an old version, and the .svn folder got
copied by mistake. If you commit the delete then the file will be
deleted from the repo as well, which I don't think is what is wanted.

Ray, do you just want to delete the now-versioned folder? If so then
just delete it. If you want to keep it but stop it from being
versioned then delete the .svn folder inside it. You may need to
refresh the view in explorer.

In future if you want to look at an old version, the Log dialog is
your friend. Pick an old revision, right click and 'Open' or 'Open
