Please quote some context when replying on a mailing list, otherwise
no-one can see what you are talking about.

I think you need to find out what a revision control system does
before starting to use it. The repository keeps all your development
history, whereas the working copy reflects just the current snapshot.
Deleting a repository and re-creating it from a WC is just not a
normal operation that anyone would do, unless they want to discard the
entire history. Revision control is all about preserving history. It's
a bit like buying a new car and rebuking the salesman for not telling
you how to drive it off a cliff safely.

You still haven't told us what you wanted to achieve, only that you
deleted the repository and you expect it to be able to regenerate from
a working copy. If you really want to hide all history then you can
export the working copy to get a structure without any of the .svn
folders, then import it into a fresh repository. If you just want to
rename the files and folders then it is a lot easier to use
TSVN->Rename on the working copy.
