Yes, that should be fine.

Just as long as you don't access the backup as a svn repository using any of the
svn tools. If you need to restore, just copy the whole thing back to your local
drive.

BTW, with the svn-fast-backup script, you can get faster backups if you have a
FSFS repository than with a BDB repository.
