Do you want to:

1. Get rid of your working copy?

2. Stop version control on your working copy, but retain the files locally?

3. Remove this directory from the repository?

Answers:

1. If you want to get rid of your working copy, just delete the working copy
using standard OS commands.

2. Do an svn export to clean out all subversion stuff (.svn directories) and
make a clean tree from that working copy. Then delete the working copy, and
rename the exported tree to the same name as your old working copy. There
you have a clean directory, no longer under version control.

3. As others have said, to remove a directory from the repository, the
subdirectory name must be removed from where it lives. This requires that
you either specify it directly to the server in the form of a URL, or have
the parent directory checked out as a working copy so you can delete this
subdirectory from it via svn delete. Make sense?
