If you remove the ,v files from the repository, it will be as if the files never existed in the repository.  You should simply be able to delete them from the old sandboxes, too.  I've done this a couple of times on our CVSNT installation, with no obvious problems.

Obviously, if you're going to do this, take a backup of the repository first... just in case :-).
