That will work fine. You can move your repository around as you
please, Mercurial does not track where the repository is store.

If you have cloned your repository, then you will find that the clones
can no longer reach the moved repository. You will simply have to
update the [paths] section of the .hg/hgrc file in the clones to make
them work like before.
