Can you provide more information? Was it an FSFS repository or BDB? Did he just plain copy the repository, or did he actually use 'svnadmin hotcopy'? With the latter, it's actually perfectly legal to copy the repository while it's being accessed (hence the name 'hotcopy'). What do the server logs have to say? The error there is generally more detailed.
