This URL looks wrong. The format for a UNC path is
file://HOSTNAME/dir/... with the special case for localhost that you
can use file:///dir or file:///c:/dir

The format subversion uses for UNC paths has changed over time, so it
may just be enforcing a more rigid definition when you relocate.

BUT ... I very strongly advise NOT to use file:// protocol on a
network share. Set up a proper server process to avoid potential data
loss in future, for all the reasons outlined in this FAQ:
