Subversion (svn) error: “containing working copy admin area is missing”

Accidentally tried to add a folder to an svn repository with files that were already added to another svn repo. This caused some confusion for subversion and I got the error message:

containing working copy admin area is missing

This SO question saved me: The solution is to do:

svn --force delete _dir_

On the directory.
