Hi,

Thanks for your response. The data has not been erased, its simply
corrupted to where subversion doesn't recognize it as its archive.
Standard virus protection tools seem to work fine on regular files with
similar corruption, I'm not sure if I should try the same tools on the
archive or I'll end up with a bigger mess. Have you dealt with a similar
situation?

It depends on what you mean by "corrupted".

It doesn't matter what caused the corruption. All that matters is the
nature of the corruption. If data got erased, there's not much you
can do about it, except to restore from backup.

Best,
