Thanks for your reply Bob! Actually, I'm new to this whole
TortoiseSVN and repository kind of thing. What did you mean when you
said "relocate all your WC's..." What is a "WC"?

Also, I don't see a "Relocate" function in the TortoiseSVN dropdown
menu when right clicking on a folder. All it lists is:

- Repo browser
- Export
- Create repository here
- Import
- Help
- Settings
- About

My Tortoise client is version 1.4

Just right click on your working copy and choose T-SVN -> Relocate... and provide the new URL path. If you are going to shut down the old server and use the same server name for the new one, you shouldn't have to do anything.
