I ran into the same problem, where I wanted to keep unversioned and
modified files locally, in the same path, and did not have TortoiseSVN
installed. This worked for me:

dir /s /b C:\Base\Path\*.svn > temp.txt
for /f %1 in (temp.txt) do (rmdir /s /q %1)
del temp.txt

After that I copied an .svn folder associated with empty
svn://server/repo/NULL to C:\Base\Path\, to keep future updates from
causing trouble. This was WinXP SP2. I'm not sure how well 'for'
commands do in other versions. Arnauld Van Muysewinkel's idea of
installing the Gnu Win tools, or MinGWin package, is another good idea
-- xargs comes in very handy, and both cp an rm are much better
behaved than [x]copy and del.
