I'm still unclear what you did, or what the problem is. A working copy is only linked to a single repository. You can have as many working copies of that repository as you like, stored in as many different places as you like. "svn commit" in any of them commits the changes in that working copy to the repository. "svn update" in any of the working copies retrieves the latest changes from the repository. Further information on how to use Subversion is in the book:
I am assuming you have two working copies, one on your desktop hard drive, and one on your flash drive, and that your repository is located in neither of those places but on some server somewhere. But it's hard to tell from your description.

The screenshot looked like a Windows directory listing of your working copy, which isn't relevant. You need to use a Subversion client to ask the working copy for information. For example, in a terminal window, change to directory of your working copy and type "svn info" to see the repository URL with which the working copy is associated. That is where your changes got committed to.
