Drive letter *and* forward slashes?

TortoiseSVN and the command line client are compatible. You should
*never* have to do anything as drastic as that. The worst case should be
a fresh checkout using TSVN, although you can just use the Relocate
command to update the URLs to what they should be, and keep the same
working copy.

Using the repo browser is a good way to ensure you get the correct URL.
