check out a new working copy from your repository
copy all files from your backup over your new working copy (but
*without* the hidden .svn folders!)
now diff every file to check whether you want to keep the changes or not
(I assume that most changes will be 'reverts' because your backup is
older than the fresh checked out working copy).
