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

1. 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.

Under D:\Documents\repo\, I can 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.

=> No trace of repo\db\transactions\ . Where did it go? What should I do to
put things back
like they were on the old PC?

Thank you.
