Tortoise SVN commits duplicate copy of working directory

I am pretty much a novice user of Tortoise SVN, or indeed of SVN itself. Sometimes before I do something that I think may threaten my working directory, and any changes in it that I haven't committed yet, I feel that I have to take a copy of the working directory, on the basis that if something dramatic happens, I can always get my work back. But then when I try to commit the working directory, it tries to commit the copy too, and it gives me errors.

How do I take a copy in such a way that it doesn't think it needs to version control the copy? And how do I now get out of the mess I have got into (see above error message)?

Thanks - Rowan
