Make a working copy from an export

Message I have an export of my repository which I wish to make into a working
copy.

Here's my situation:
I use Subversion to manage my music library. I have a working copy at
home and at work, and sometimes check out portions in other places. I
recently deleted my working copy at work and need to restore it. The
server is hosted at home, so when I check out at work, I'm depending on
my upload bandwidth at home, which is minimal. An export of the library
is 10GB, but a working copy is 21GB. I can bring an export to work on
my 16GB USB Flash drive, but the flash drive is too small for a working
copy. That's why I want to put an export on my flash drive (at home),
take it to work, and then convert the export to a working copy.

This hasn't been an issue in the past because each update at work was
only a handful of files, since I was adding music to the repository one
album at a time. Now that I have to check out the entire library, it
becomes a much more bandwidth-hungry operation. I have seen some
tutorials on how to make an export from a working copy, but not the
other way around. I would make no changes to the export.

I realize there are other ways to do this:
1. Use the flash drive to copy half of the working copy one day and the
other half the next day
2. Run a series of checkout/interrupt iterations at work.
I'm wondering if there's a tool in Subversion to do the work for me.
