Re: Windows command to delete all .svn dirs

Another option would be to use TortoiseSVN right drag the top folder to another directory and select svn export all, and it will copy all the files except the ones in the .svn folders. It will also copy unversioned files.

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.
