you have new repositories, you must check out new working copies. No exceptions.

You could pick one of the projects to keep in the existing repository
and simply delete the other one in the HEAD view.  Then only the
workspaces for the other project would have be checked out again.  But
I didn't understand the comments about replicating/moving etc.  What
is the real issue here?  Are there groups that work on one of the
projects without good network access?
