Issue with updating when folder already exists on local hard drive

From: Bryan Andrews <bandrews_at_trendinfluence.com>

This issue seems to come up often:
 
We have a local folder that is part of a project but is not in source control for example lets call it "externalimages". Several developers may have this folder. A decision is made that this folder should be added to source control, it is added by one developer, now the next developer who tries to update will have a problem if they too had this folder in their project (the SVN client does not want to overwrite it).
 
Is there a way to prompt to overwrite this local folder/contents from the subversion repository rather than fail on the update?
 
Thanks.
