You could checkout all new copies of all the working copies, then use
xcopy to copy the files, including any changes you may made to them,
from the old working copies to the new ones.

Put this in a file (eg c:\temp\exclude.txt) to filter out the .svn
folders from the 1.6 working copies:


and run this:

xcopy /E /F /EXCLUDE:c:\temp\exclude.txt c:\path\to\1.6\working\copy

add /-Y to the options if you want it to prompt you when overwriting a
file. What you should wind up with is the new working copy, including
any changes you had pending in your old working copies before you
upgraded tortoise. Wrap the paths in quotes if they include spaces.
