The correct way to check out an SVN repository (using Tortoise SVN) 
would be:

1) Right click in the directory you want to check out to and click "SVN 
2) Type the URL of the repository, which might be one of:
3) Type the directory for checkout if you intend it to be other than 
what is indicated. If you have an svn directory where all of your 
repositories will be held, you would specify subdirectories into which 
to checkout.
4) Choose between HEAD or a specific revision, if you have one it mind.
5) Click OK.

No moving is necessary if you follow these instructions. However, 
there's no problem with moving directories around like you did since all 
of the SVN information is contained within the directories containing 
the repository, so it travels well.
