"as they refer to the same URL" error in svn

I'm running into some issues commiting some files with subversion. I get an error that says "cannot commit both file1 and file2 as they refer to the same URL". Now I know that I'm getting this error because I just copied and pasted some folders and then renamed them and modified the content inside. I know that I should have done a svn copy instead of a normal one. But how do I fix the problem now?

In the folders you copied, there is a hidden folder (.svn if memory serves). Delete this folder, and all should be well in the world.

Awesome, thanks. That will be much easier next time. I solved the problem but in a much more complicated way.
