svnadmin hotcopy

i would like to occassionally back-up my entire repository to USB stick, in
case my
repository's hard drive dies, or something equally unlucky happens.

after reading the following info from chapter 4 of the tortoiseSVN pdf, i
to use "svnadmin hotcopy" to help me do this:

<quote> The simplest (but not recommended) way is just to copy the
repository folder onto the backup medium.
However, you have to be absolutely sure that no process is accessing the
data. In this context,
access means any access at all. A BDB repository is written to even when the
operation only appears
to require reading, such as getting status. If your repository is accessed
at all during the copy, (web
browser left open, WebSVN, etc.) the backup will be worthless. </quote>

however, i haven't installed SVN itself, just tortoiseSVN, so when i tried
to use
"svnadmin hotcopy" from a command prompt, the command was not found.

that's why i am now searching for a way to do a "hotcopy" using tortoiseSVN.
(e.g. right-click somewhere to find a "hotcopy" item on a context menu).
