Everyone was really helpful, thank you. I looked at the old VSS repository
again and the files were corrupt there. Sorry if I gave anyone a good
scare! ;-)

Thanks again,

Hi Brian,

as far as I know, subversion uses binary diffs anytime (also for text
files), so I would guess that subversion itself is not the one to blame. I
don't know about the script used, though.

On the other hand, VSS has a pretty simplistic approach to find out if a
file is "binary" or "text" (unless you specify this explicitly): It only
checks for ASCII-0 characters -- if it doesn't find any, it's "text".
This caught me badly once or twice.

So the question to you: are those revisions maye older revisions from VSS,
and (if yes) can you get the un-corrrupted file from the VSS repo?

                                       Corrupt PDFs?

Subversion appears to have corrupted PDFs I have stored in it. I've tried
to get old revisions but they are corrupt. It seems that when I imported
my VSS database, the svn client "guessed" that the PDFs were text, not
binary. Does this sound right? What is the solution, since I can't change
the property on old revisions? How do I get the old revisions uncorrupted?
