svn repository killed

Hi !

I have been running SVN repository on my computer for quite some time, but two weeks ago my computer crashed, and now I am without SVN (backups not available, and old disk is irreparably damaged).

My question is... Is there a way to restore repository if you have files stored somewhere locally. With repository I mean SVN repository with all files and all diffs under FSFS, and files stores locally is image (checkout) of all this files...

I have created my SVN repository from CVS one, which I still have somewhere, only problem is that between time I created repository and now, there is about year difference (so I lost year worth of history) and about 200 versions...

Brute force is probably to recreate SVN from CVS, save all local data, make checkout from repository, and then copy all saved files, to replace the old ones (and add new ones), and them commit everything.

I would like to know if there is any other way to do this. Maybe like create empty repository and "import" saved local data somehow?

Please advise...
