If its a corrupt HDD, then you cant really ensure that copy is free of data
corruption! also copying Repo folder will also depend what backend type u
use? BDB or FSFS. All my repos are FSFS only, to ensure archiving and
backups/restores are easy.

I suggest a "svnadmin dump" on the failing machine, but store it on a
different HDD and then "svnadmin load" on ur new HDD to populate the repo.
that will also ensure that ur repository is free of corruption.

of course, if i m in correct above, please feel free to correct.
