Use rsync, man. You will love it. It will pick just the modified files,
skipping .svn dirs, and upate your new WC in minutes, not days ;)

rsync --exclude .svn --archive --verbose OLD-WC/ NEW-WC/ --dry-run

Whill show you what rsync is going to do, without changing your new WC, and:

rsync --exclude .svn -av OLD-WC/ NEW-WC/

will do the job.

NB. AFAIK, rsync also works on Windows, if not natively, then under Cygwin --
you can install it by "browse-and-click" from the CygWin site.
