Moving to a new disk (restoring from backups)

On a Windows machine, my SVN repository is on a failing hard disk (D).
I first used "svnadmin dump" to create a backup file. On the new drive
(E), I created a new repository (svnadmin create) with the same name
and path (other than the drive letter). I then used "svnadmin load"
to make the new repository match the one from the failing hard drive.

As I'm using WebDAV and Apache, I next modified the Apache
configuration file and simply changed the "d" drive letter in the
SVNPath entry to "e." I then restarted Apache. Now, however, I cannot
access my repository. If I browse the repository with Firefox, for
example, I get:
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated
with it. The document tree is shown below.
<m:human-readable errcode="720005">
Could not open the requested SVN filesystem
If I try to use svn log from the command line, I get PROPFIND errors
(500 Internal Server Error).

What have I done wrong? Is there a better way to move a repository
from one disk to another?
