Windows, or Windows command prompt?

From Explorer (make sure you're set to show hidden files), go to the
upper-most directory level you want to remove the directories from,
hit Ctrl+F, and search All files and folders, put in .svn as the
filename to look for, click Advanced and make sure the first 3 are
selected (Search system folders, Search hidden files & folders, Search
subfolders). Sort the results by size so that the directories are all
grouped, select them, and delete.
