Hi,
What about such configuration:
Apache2 DAV/2 SVN/1.2.4 on the PC, where is your main repository site and
another mirror site on the USB stick. The you can use the 1.4.2 command
'svnsync' to make incremental backups of your repositories. One drawback
exists,
however: When the USB stick is removed (the mirror repository is not
present),
Apache cannot start. So you have to edit yout httpd.conf and restart
Apache before
sync'ing and then edit again and restart it after sync'ing before
removing the USB stick.
The positive thing is that you do not have to remember which repository
has changed.
You may create a batch file to invoke svnsync for every repository.
