Re: Reattaching to repository - is it possible?

It depends on what you did when you disconnected. If you removed the SVN
metadata, then you cannot just reconnect. If you did not remove the
metadata, then you can. However, in your case, since you moved the
repository, you need to use the SVN command line to run the svn switch
--relocate command to point your WC at the new repository.

Team -> Share should then recognize it and let it reattach.

Based on the dialogs you are saying you are seeing, I would guess that you
deleted the SVN metadata. Assuming that is the case, this is what you need
to do:

1) Copy project to a safe location.
2) Delete project in Eclipse workspace
3) Checkout project from repository
4) Copy files over top of existing files.
5) Possibly do a refresh in Eclipse so that it knows about new files.

We are working on implementing these workaround steps programmatically in
Subclipse. They are working on building this feature into Subversion,
which would make it easier to implement. It looks like it will get into
