I took a shell script that I wrote for my Mac mini server and
modified it so that it works under Cygwin. It first makes a unique
backup directory (based on the date and time the script runs). Then
it makes a hotcopy of the repo to that backup directory. The backup
directory is tarred and gzipped and finally copied across the network
to a share that's backed up to tape. So the network share has a
bunch of archived versions of the entire repo. Every once in a
while, I go through and delete the really old backups.

I manually run the script every night before leaving the office, as I
haven't figured out how to start a Cygwin shell script from Windows'
Task Scheduler.

Here's the script:


DATE=`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S`

echo "Making hotcopy directory:"
mkdir -v -p $SVNBKUPDIR
echo "Starting svnadmin hotcopy:"
svnadmin hotcopy $SVNROOT $SVNBKUPDIR
echo "Starting archive process:"
echo "Making destination directory:"
mkdir -v -p $DEST
echo "Copying archive over network:"
echo "Done!"
