Is it?
1) TortoiseSVN->Create patch (from old copy)
2) Click "copy to clipboard"
3) TortoiseSVN->Apply patch (to new copy)
4) Click "load from clip board"
5) Click "patch all"

done. Bet it would take a lot longer to copy across individual files
one at a time, especially if there were lots of them and the directory
structure was deep.
