You can try using Switch as the warning message suggested. However, at
this time you may need to just create a new working copy by doing a
Check Out from the repo at its new location.

Any uncommitted changes from your old working copy can then be copied
or merged with the latest revisions of the corresponding files in the
new working copy.

FYI, Since I so rarely need to relocate a repo, I have made this same
mistake a few times over the years, however, each time, I follow the
recommendation of the warning message.
