You don't have to do anything. If you have a Subversion working copy, it
contains a folder called .svn which tells (among other things) where in the
repository the working copy came from. This allows the Subversion client
(and TortoiseSVN) to do updates, commits, etc.

If you have TortoiseSVN installed, you should be able to right-click in the
working copy folder and select SVN Update ..., SVN Commit ..., etc. (If you
are not seeing these two choices, something is wrong.)
