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

As it turns out, doing the "export to same directory" seems to actually "unregister" the directory 
from source control.  It leaves the green check marks in explorer - not sure what that means. 
However if I go into the solution itself, it no longer has the version control dots next to the 
items in the solution explorer.

So it appears to have removed that local copy of the solution from source control.
