I think you can do a "switch". I don't think relocate will work here because that is when there is a change to the server/repo name. I'm not sure if that applies to folder name changes on the same server. But, your best bet is probably to just check out a new working copy.
So in order of disrution try:
3. new checkout (you can copy any changed files from your current wc to the new one)
