I check out a project, I copy it and I am going to delete .svn. In every directory, I have .svn file. May I use one command to delete all of them recursively (In sub directory also).

Using windows explorer, search for all *.svn files starting at your top folder.

Then Select and delete all the files that the searh finds.

or from dos, you can try

del /s *.svn

I already found a script by myself. tomorrow I will post them.

The reason why I want to delete .svn.

The reason might sounds strange, I make a application, but I could not do branch or tag for some particular reason. But I could check in new project files. Since it is not a big project, it has a couple of branch only. So I copy the source code directory,  rename and check in again as another project. So I need to delete this old .svn. That's it.

you don't need a script, just use file search to find files name .svn and then delete them
