Re: Backup of repositories

From: Gustavo Guerra <gmcg_at_acm.org>

I'm using this solution:

I have a network location where I backup the repositories. I do an
incremental backup on every commit
Supose the nerwork location is \\backup-server\svnbackups
Suppose I have repositories A and B in c:\svnroot\A and c:\svnroot\B
I have the files c:\svnroot\A\hooks\post-commit.bat and
c:\svnroot\B\hooks\post-commit.bat with
  svnadmin dump --incremental --deltas %1 -r %2 >
\\backup-server\svnbackups\A\A%2
and
  svnadmin dump --incremental --deltas %1 -r %2 >
\\backup-server\svnbackups\B\B%2
