I've never used hotcopy, so maybe there's something I don't know. But
the error message looks strange to me, since there is no file
DB_CONFIG in my FSFS repository's db directory.

Is d:\repos a folder containing many repositories, or is it itself
the repository? (IOW, is d:\repos\myproject a repository, or a path
within a repository?) If the former, then your syntax should be ok,
but if the latter, you should be backing up the whole repository:

svnadmin hotcopy d:\repos d:\backup

Are you sure you need to do a hotcopy? I am still under the
impression that a hotcopy is never necessary for an FSFS repository.
