Change name of folder with many subfolders

in early versions of SVN it was not possible to change folders name without deleting all subcontent and commit all content again with just new folder name.

E.g.: I have a folder with name "oldfoldername" and this folder contains many subfolders and the content of about 1 GB data.
If I rename this folder in svn now to "newfoldername" through TortoiseSVN will this delete the old folder and upload all content with new foldername, so add just another 1 GB to the repository?
Or would it just rename the folder and won't upload anything?

I tried this but stopped then when I saw in the list that all files would be deleted.
I cannot upload (and donwload later) 1 GB of data.

If this is like this, is there another possibiltiy to change a folders name without big up and download?


I am on Windows XP (with TortoiseSVN 1.8.6), Mac OS 10.6.8 (with SCPlugin r1122 SVN 1.6.11) and Subversion 1.6.17 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
