TSVN can create local repositories for access using file:// URLs. Your
repo may be on your PC but the svn:// protocol means that it is using
a separate server process.

As I already said, no it definitely did not. TSVN installs by default
into the Program Files directory, unless you specifically ask for it
to be installed somewhere different.

You need to locate your repository on your PC. If it has been deleted
then you need to recover it from backup. You then need to move it to
the new server, possibly by doing a dump/load cycle as described in
the subversion manual (remembering to preserve the repository UUID).
When it is safely up and running then use TSVN->relocate to make your
working copies point to the new server URL, or checkout a fresh
working copy from the new server.
