what should i do for that ??

See my previous response.

It's your repository you can do whatever you want with it. However, if you remove the Attic sub-directory you will *never* be able to reproduce the state of your hierarchy from the point in the past where the files in the Attic existed. IE, if you remove a file today and then remove the Attic sub-directory, tomorrow you will *not* be able to check out the files from yesterday, since it is no longer in the repository. Essentially, as far as CVS is concerned the file never existed.
