No, it's not :)
My guess is that you have a dual boot system, and the drive you want to
create the repository on was first accessed by the other OS of your dual
boot system.

You must add yourself as an accepted user to the whole drive:
right-click on the drive, choose the "security" tab, then click on
"edit" and add yourself (your username) to the list of users with full
access (you might have to give yourself the rights first).

Wouldn't help.

Yes, you can run it side by side. But you'll only get one menu. After
all, you only use one explorer (either the default x64 version or the
32-bit version). If you have not installled the win32 version yet,
you'll notice that in applications file-open dialogs, the TSVN shell
extension (overlays, context menu) is not available. Only in x64
application it is.

32-bit apps can only load 32-bit dlls/shell extensions
x64 apps can only load x64 dlls/shell extensions
