Remember that directories are not branched; only files are branched, so when you added the new directory hierarchy you added it for all branches (though the files in those directories might not exist on all all branches.) All information about the branches that a file is part of exists in the file, and nowhere else. So, if you don't need to keep the new files then yes, you can simply remove the directory hierarchy from the repository and re-create it elsewhere.

However, you could also just move it to where you want it in the repository, which would retain the files in the new location.

Note that either of these approaches will cause confusion in working directories where this directory hierarchy was checked out. If no one is working with the files/directories in question it won't be a big problem, but if they are they can simply remove the old directory and then re-check out everything, which should clean up the traces of the old directory and check out the new one.

Seeing as I am the only one with these files checked out, this shouldn't
be a problem.  Thank you for the info.
