Backup of repositories

Hello all,

What is the best way to create backups of repositories? I want to create
backups of my repos. on a weekly base, but I don't know how to do it
correctly. Is simply copying the root directory (subdirectories included
ofcourse) enough? I want my backups to contain *all* information (versions,
branches, ...), so it's identical to the original one, and I want them to be
correct for upcoming, future releases (so new releases are backwars
compatible with my backups, so I can continune using them even within, for
example, 10 years; nothing as irritating as backups which can't be used
anymore because the current version doesn't support them anymore).

I'm using windows XP with suversion 1.0.8. (by the way, why did the .exe
installear dissapear from the download page? It was there yesterday, but i's
gone now!)

Thanks a lot,
