In TortoiseSVN I've looked through the settings but the only reference to a repository URL was under Settings -> Log Caching -> Cached Repositories. This setting though seems to be for message logging purposes.

TortoiseSVN does not point to any specific repository.

Rather, each individual working copy you check out points to a
specific URL within any repository you choose.

So for example you could have 5 working copies for various directories
within 2 different repositories, if you want:


You specify the repository and path within the repository as a single
URL at checkout time.

If you already have a working copy and you don't want to get a fresh
checkout, there is a "relocate..." command in the menu that lets you
change the repository a working copy is associated with.

If you have a working copy pointing to one directory (like feature1
above) and want to switch it to point to trunk instead (within the
same repository), there is a "switch" command for that.
