My setup file says: svn-1.1.1-setup-2.exe ( i believe its 1.1.1). I am using
TortoiseSVN 1.1.1 for working with it.

Yes. I never had a crash before. I use it for developing/coding etc. It runs
IIS, MySQL 4.1.7 and some other daemons. Though these are all used for test
cases. I will try memtest86 and report if anything is found here.

But I want to move from CVS to subversion . I just fear that I dont lose all
my data with data corruption.
