Ah, sorry I misread what you wrote.

All these zillions of storage methods can be confusing.
Just recently someone (not me, but I wouldn't be surprised if it had been me)
was saying that the Apache Software Foundation's Subversion repository was
hosted on an SD card for performance reasons but really meant SSD :)

Unfortunately there is no incremental hotcopy support yet,
see http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3815

If you ensure that no commits happen during the backup period you
could use rsync instead.
