TortoiseSVN as of version 1.6 only supports the FSFS format for
repositories (when creating them and when accessing them via file://, no
limitations of course when accessing a BDB repository via svn/http).

So you're already using an FSFS format repository.

But your path (F:\) indicates that you created the repository on a
network share, and from the error my guess is that this share is served

Please do NOT do this. Accessing a repository via file:// on a network
share is dangerous (if it works).
See our docs about why:
