You'll probably want the repository folder. It contains all the files
you have committed along with previous versions. When you restore the
backup you can checkout a new working directory from the repository.

If you have any files in your working directory that aren't in
Subversion and you want to back them up you should either add the files
to the repository or back them up separately.
