Moving repo from old PC to new PC?

        I'm not sure what I should do to achieve this, so I figured I
should ask before doing something wrong.

I'm using TortoiseSVN as a a one-man SCM, ie. directly hitting the
hard disk instead of talking to a Subversion server.I partionned the
new hard-disk exactly like the old one, right down to the drive letter
and the path to where the old repository lived, and copied the repo/
directory in there.

But after installing TortoiseSVN, rebooting, right-clicking on a
directory where some source code lives and is under source-control,
and choosing "SVN Commit", the "Enter Log Message" pops up but:

1. I notice that the destination is half-wrong:


There's no trace of ./delphi/myproject in the repo/ directory. I can
only see the system directories conf/, db/, hooks/, and locks/

2. If I click on OK anyway, TSVN says:

"Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: Can't create directory
'D:\Documents\repo\db\transactions\58-1.txn': The system cannot find
the path specified.

=> Where did my directories go? What should I do to put things back
like they were on the old PC?

Thank you.
