This makes sense now. Because in my new copy of the repository, I removed
the spaces in the repository name.

Many thanks

You also have to use a path to the repository with no spaces or special
chars in it. Inside the repository that's no problem, but since the whole
url gets escaped, the path to the repository must not have such chars in it
since local paths are not allowed to be escaped.

Repository put it e.g., to \\research1\elements\SVNRepository
or
\\research1\elements\SVN_Repository
