Um, isn't that exactly what you said you wanted? 'Move' implies
removing from location X and reappearing at location Y.

And did it not retain that history? You haven't told us how you moved
them, so how can we tell what the result is?

Again, you haven't told us your repository structure, so how can we
possibly know that without a crystal ball?

Wherever did you read that? svnadmin is not part of TortoiseSVN.

Look on the subversion website (subversion.tigris.org), try the download page.

It's not difficult, but you need to understand the basics of version
control. Reading the manuals is always a good start.
