Going from a true server to putting your repository on a network share
is a major step backwards. Get more disk space for your server
instead.

This is really a server topic, not client, and thus would be better
suited to the Subversion Users mailing list. The release notes [1] and
manual [2] both have information on the upgrade process. Short
version: you don't HAVE to do anything. But there are benefits to
doing so.
