Re: Strategy for backup and recovering svn repository

I tried this, seems to work. Anyone has experience with this method? The
repositories are going to be huge 1GB to 50GB, that's why i'm thinking
of taking this approach. Take a hotcopy dump, then incremental dumps.
Refresh this monthly.
My strategy is that after taking hotcopy ,grab its youngest version and
then get dumps after that. After that just zip the data and get rid of
directory. So, that way i ensure that i grab all the revisions after
hotcopy.
What do you guys think?? Any issues? Anyone taking this approach, or i'm
better off just using svnadmin dump instead of hotcopy??
The FAQ needs to address this, as searching this list brought me some
similar questions but no concrete answer.
-Thanks.
