Subject: Removing Folder with non-Alphanumeric character

I created a folder via the command line svn tool. By mistake (fat fingers)
a '\' was added to the name. I am not able to delete or rename the folder
in the repo. How do I correct this issue?

example http://myrepo/svn/projectname\

Try escaping the backslash with another backslash.
If you're on Linux or UNIX, the backslash is a special character used to
turn off any special meaning of the next character. So try using another
backslash to turn off the special meaning of the original backslash.
