Files from old repository

I have hit a problem that I have not come across before - I am sure there must
be a simple solution to it.

I have large amount of code files stored on a developer's winxp system and we
need to import them into a project maintained on a subversion repository on a
freebsd server on our local network..

The archive is a back up copies of the working files kept on another
subversion server that that was destroyed in a fire. The copies were made by
a process that removed the .svn files.

If the files are imported into the current project, as is, they retain their
old version properties that would conflict with the versioning of the new

What is the simplist way to remove the version property information from these
files, there are a thousands of files in the archive, so they can be imported
cleanly into the current project and then committed as part of the current
project into the current repository?

I can move them from the xp system to a unix system and carry out the
conversion process there, and then transfer them back to the developer's
system, if that would be easier. I cannot see a way of doing this via the
subclipse interface.

If it helps the current project is a Ruby on Rails and is being developed
using the eclipse IDE with aptana/radrails and subclipse.

Thanks in advance
