Restore repo from original directory or working copy?

From: Dave Morris <dmorris_at_faam.net>

Hello all!

I did a really stupid thing. My repository resided on a FC2 system
and I wanted to upgrade the OS. I copied relevant directories over to
another server. I performed a "svnadmin dump," but I got interrupted
and apparently failed to copy the dump file to the other server.

I subsequently proceeded to repartition and format the old server and
upgrade to CentOS 4.3. Only then did I realize my mistake.

I have the original repository directory intact and a good working
copy. I am the only developer, so I do not have to be concerned with
multiple working copies. Is there a (relatively) easy way to restore
my repository directory on the new server maintaining all the
history? Or can I recreate the repository from my working copy,
again, maintaining the history?

The alternative is to try to retrieve the dumpfile from the deleted
partitions. If none of the above is possible/successful, should I
delete the .svn directories from my working copy before importing it
into a new repository?

In case it's relevant, one of the projects is a MS Access database and
therefore binary.

Thanks in advance!
