Moving files between folders in repo-browser; revision history lost?

I am using TortoiseSVN, and the VisualSVN add-in for Visual Studio. After
reading the manual, I realized that our folder structure was not optimal.
Instead of having a setup like:

We instead have a format like this:


etc. We are looking to move to the first structure, above, where each app
has its own folder and the branches/tags/trunk folders are beneath each
app's folder.

Looking at the manual, it appeared that we could simply create the new
folders in the Repo-browser, then move the contents of the folders from the
old folders to the new folders by dragging them in the Repo-browser, and
keep our revision history. Unfortunately, it appears that this is not the
case. The history of the files in the new folders only goes back as far as
the move into the new folders.

So, I have 2 questions: first, what is the correct way to do a move like I
outlined above, and, second, is there any way to fix the missing history on
the files we moved?
