Dear Andy,
The folder is shared for a backup process that just copied the folder to
an external HD in addition to taking dumps and hotcopies

Also, accessing the repo using TortoiseSvn via Http only.
Thank You

Stop Apache.
Copy c:\svnrepo to e:\
Update your Apache config and any other files that have references to
c:\svnrepo to point to e:\svnrepo Start Apache

Curious as to what you mean by c:\svnrepo being a "shared drive". The C$
administrative shares should be disabled by default or at least tightly
restricted, and you shouldn't be accessing the repository over the
network using file:///.

Of course, make sure you have backups before doing any of this, and
you'll be trying it first on a test system, right?
