R – Tortoise Delete File System Repository


I am working on a file system repository with Tortoise.

I deleted the initial folder where I created the repository.

The folder which I added to the old repository, when I try to add to a new repository, the error message appears:

Repository UUID '6df16c57-c740-ea49-ab7f-fcd22d7f7cb9' doesn't match expected

Is there a way to simply clear out the settings for the old repository? So that I could perform the importing of the folder to add into the new repository in a clean slate.

BTW this is my tortoise version (if it is of any help):

TortoiseSVN 1.5.8, Build 15348 – 32 Bit , 2009/02/13 18:06:18

Subversion 1.5.5,

apr 1.2.12

apr-utils 1.2.12

berkeley db 4.4.20

neon 0.28.3

OpenSSL 0.9.8i 15 Sep 2008

zlib 1.2.3

Basically, all I want to do is to clear up the repository which I earlier created so that it is like starting from scratch over again.
