I assume you have used the "--depth" argument to initially check out a
sparse working copy, and then pulled in more items using svn update,
and now want to remove those items again. Unfortunately, my
understanding is that you cannot currently make a sparse checkout less
sparse than it already is. So the only option I'm aware of would be to
do a new sparse checkout.


In the case of the tags directory, though, I'm not sure why you'd need
a checkout of it (sparse or not) at all. If you ever need to access a
tag, just check out (or switch an existing working copy to) the tag.
