Putting old versions into repository

I'm new to TortoiseSVN so I apologize in advance if this is a dumb
question or has been answered many times before (I have looked and I
could not find an answer).

We have an old (10+ years) legacy code (with 5000+ files in multiple
directories) that we want to put into TortoiseSVN. We have been doing
configuration management the old fashioned way of saving the entire
code (all 5000 files and multiple directories) into backup
directories. It is easy to put the current version of the code into
TortoiseSVN and proceed. What we would like to do is put some of those
older saved versions into the repository. How do I do that? I tried by
first starting the repository with the 10 year old version. I then
deleted everything in that directory and copied in the 9 year old
version into my working copy and committed but that obviously did not
work because all the .svn directories had been deleted. There are too
many files for me to manually update in my working copy and commit.
Any ideas? Thanks!
