My computer changed while I was checked out
So I'm trying to uncheck out through Switch Workspace,
"This workspace can not be used on this computer other than because the host field does not match your computer name or the workspace root can be used on this computer."
With these messages, we are unable to switch.
How do I check out my old workspace?

Easiest solution is to go to the command line and run:

p4 set P4HOST=your_old_computer_name

This tells Perforce that you're on the same computer you were on before.

The other solution is to edit all your workspaces and change the "Host" field to match your new host name.
