Ok just executing the command as follows caused the following error. Does
this mean I have to run it as sudo?

svnadmin hotcopy /local0/svn /local0/backup/svn --clean-logs
svnadmin: Can't open file '/local0/svn/locks/db-logs.lock': Permission
denied

Any reason why you're not using the SubVersion "Hot Copy" admin command:
svnadmin hotcopy c:\repos\aproject z:\backup\aproject --clean-logs

This can be used to hot-copy the database, without taking it off-line.
This could be used:
1) To hot-copy directly onto your backup media (eg. virtual tape store),
      - Preferable as less-steps is less to go wrong!
2) Or, Use as the "mirror" that your nightly tape backup archives.
      - Ensure that the the hot-copy runs well before the scheduled
tape-backup
      - If the hot-copy fails - you'll just be backing up old files!

Regards,
Jay.
