I assume you mean "the backup was NOT regular enough". In this case,
anyone who has a newer working copy than the repository must get a
new working copy, and must not attempt to check in ever again from
the old working copies, because this will confuse the server
mightily. Recreating those lost revisions is also likely to be fun.

For this reason, I would say that any backup strategy that does not
guarantee that you have every revision backed up from the moment
after they're created is inadequate. Put a line in your post-commit
hook that does an incremental dump of just that revision, to a new
file. Once a week (once a day?) you could do a more complete dump,
and clean up the now-unnecessary incrementals. In addition, you could
do an occasional hotcopy backup. You can never have too many
different kinds of backups.
