Deleting from the repository

Howdy -

I've got a quick question (I hope the answer is quick and easy.) about
subversion CVS. This is a question about best practice with a repository
in general, I use Tortoise with subversion.

I've inherited about 4 years worth of web scripts and have imported it
all into CVS, I've been using it for about a month now with a little bit
of file changes here and there.

My question is: Can I delete a large number of files and folders from
the repository (using proper methods) without causing a problem? In
short the old developer would create a lot of *.bak files for old
versions and the IDE created a ton of useless notes files and other
things that just are a waste of space and add clutter. Each folder of
nearly 1000 folders has this kind of stuff in it. So if I search for it
all, then delete from the repository will it cause a problem?

Thanks for your time,
