If you want to delete a "repository" and not a working copy, just use
the OS delete/remove command not the svn command.

Subject: Destroy initial testing/learning repository


Kindly Help


We are developers of groundwater and environmental technologies for
complex sites. Our plan is to use SVN package for source codes and

During learning processes we have created several repositories by
mistake. Please see attached jpg file.


We have not been able to clean these redundant links. We tried

Svn del

Svn rm

Svn browser to delete repository



Z:\>svn rm file:///d:/dummy/svndemo

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL

svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///d:/dummy'

svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:

svn: 'svn-commit.tmp'


Z:\>svn rm -r file:///d:/dummy/svndemo

svn: Syntax error in revision argument 'file:///d:/dummy/svndemo'


Z:\>svn rm file:///d:/dummy/svndemo

svn: '\' is not a working copy

svn: Can't open file '\.svn\entries': The system cannot find the path


Kindly help
