Switch or Relocate?

From: Eni Oken <eni_at_enioken.com>

I have the following issue:

1) Needed to do a fresh checkout on to a new local computer (Windows).

2) The checkout is enormous an is always crashing because Windows gets confused with one file name or another (weird characters).

3) clean up wasn't doing the trick, every time I started the checkout it would start the huge download all over again and crash again.

5) So I logged into the server with ssh client. Checked out ON TO THE SERVER. Then used ftp to just dump the entire checked out thing on to my local machine.

6) However, there is one more step needed: now if I am to do an update, the address svn+ssh refers to localhost. I want to indicate that it should now change all the folders info to check the proper remote server.

Do I use "switch" or "relocate"? (Or something else?) It seems like relocate is more for situations when the repository has changed (but in a way, it relatively has).

I DON'T want to compromise the repository, for it is an active live site.
