Retroactively branching something / trimmed branches

I forgot to branch before making a bunch of changes to something, so I'm
looking at retroactively branching it. What's the recommended way to do
this? I'm on Windows, so I'm using a mixture of Tortoise and the command
line. I'm thinking that I need to create (and add) a new
branches/Foo-3.0 folder; then I was going to check out trunk (with
-r1234 to get the revision before I made the bunch of changes), then I
was going to use Tortoise to copy the files from 'r1234' into


Will this work? Is it the simplest way to do this? What should I do


Another (related) question: when creating a branch in the past, I've
simply done svn cp http://svn/repos/trunk
http://svn/repos/branches/Bar-2.0. We have more than one product in
source control, which means that they all get copied into the branch.
This is confusing. However, I can't copy just the product directory,
because it'll be dependent on stuff in the 'Lib' directory. How should I
go about trimming down a branch to only include the stuff really needed
for building a particular version of a product?
