ok I have done the "SVNAdmin Upgrade" which apparently worked
successfully but took mere milliseconds.

I deduce from this that it was already upgraded.
In any case I copied a new branch and attempted to merge into it from
the trunk again.

I was met, as each time before, with what appeared to be an attempt to
process everything since revision 1.
Each and every file in the entire repository was processed ( added or
skipped) and I feel that this is unlikely to be correct.

What is a dump/load for and is it likely that my installation of
VisualSVN did it during it's upgrade?

I'm very wary of messing with my repo without learning what I'm doing

I have backups but I'm not entirely sure how I would restore them
other than overwriting what is already there.

Sorry if that seems a little untrusting or paranoid. I do appreciate
your help
