[dba-SQLServer] SVN - removing all version control for a directory and all files underneath

I am trying to copy a solution to a new location, strip all version control from it, delete a ton of 
projects within that solution and then version control the new solution.

I copied the entire solution from my laptop to a VM and under my user / projects there.  The copy 
still appears to be under version control.  I looked in help and it says to copy the directory to 
itself using the vsn right click menu.  I did that and it removed the vsn green checkmark from the 
top level directory (the solution) but left the check mark on all of the subdirectories (projects 
and stuff).

Does anyone have a clue how to completely and entirely remove a directory from version control - 
remove all green check marks from every subdirectory etc.?
