svn revert -R <folder>
will have the same result as you had in 1.6 when you removed the folder and
then performed the update.

The data that got missing in 1.6 when you got the tree conflict is now
already stored in the pristine store so the update is no longer necessary,
but it doesn't hurt to update anyway.

In 1.6 you should have resolved the tree conflict in the same way, but the
recovering process from missing data was about the same thing.

In 1.7 we can usually also recover from the missing conflicted data, so you
get the conflicted data back.
