Why not go to a completely new and empty folder and check out your
project there?

But if you must use the existing folder:
If you delete the .svn directory in the target dir you are trying to
check out into then it stops being a working copy altogether...
Notice that .svn is a hidden folder so if you are on Windows you won't
see it unless you modify the Windows Explorer view properties to show
hidden files and folders.
