Removing a versioned file/directory or fetch svn project without svn files and without deleting it

I worked with any technologies and languages. Many times we need some folder or codebase for your new project.
So we need to copy old project code or folder in our new project. In rails we need many plugins for our project. Some times few plugins are not getting installed in our project.

Few days back i tried to install acts_as_solr plugin in my project. I got an error. So i coppied acts_as_solr plugin from my old project and pasted in new project.

When i tried to SVN commit the files in the new project. That files started commiting to Old project.
So i need to remove all .svn folders form all the subfolders. Than only i can add all the folder to new project.

I google around for solution. I found many ways:

  • Remove the all .svn folder from all subfolder.
  • Through linux command find all .svn file and delete. (but i think this harmful)
  • SVN export – command

SVN export is the very simple and reliable way to fetch project out of svn.
In windows, using svn export is very easy.
