With a few assumptions, I think you want this:

(Assumption 1) Your files all exist in some fixed location on your
machine for build dependencies, and that location currently has your
'old' source files. If not, you could just start at step 3.
(Assumption 2) Your posting said you had already migrated from VSS to
SVN, so we assume you have a working repository.

Step 1 - As you said, copy those files out to a safe location to avoid
anything being overwritten.
Step 2 - Delete the files and folders in that hierarchy to make the
folder structure clean.
Step 3 - Check out the existing files from Subversion into your desired
file location.
    - You should now have a functioning working copy.
Step 4 - Copy the previous files over top of the working copy.
Step 5 - Check in the working copy either as one large commit, or (even
better) commit them as logically grouped changes for better record

Hope that helps!
