If your revision numbers are continuing in sequence, then maybe your old
revisions are still there. Try using the "Show Log" command in a fresh
working copy containing the the latest revision of the repository root, and
browse through the old revisions. You may find that your changes that
"screwed up" the repository can be undone.

If your repository is _really_ screwed then you should definitely start
afresh, or you might find further corruption down the line, however from
your description it just sounds like you've deleted files from the HEAD
revision that you didn't mean to delete.

Good luck!
