svn 1.8 upgrade working copy

So I have decided to update my tortoise svn from 1.7.x to 1.8.1 today, and I couldn't use the working copies as the new client is not backwards compatible. Turns out that I just had to restart my computer to complete the installation (duh) and after that there was a new option available when right clicking on the old format working copy:

Selecting the first option, shows the following window:

All we have to do is to choose the first option, and our old working copy is upgraded to the new 1.8.x format.

Please note that this is a one way operation, so once you upgrade you can't go back to 1.7.x

Happy coding
