Moving a repository (in Windows-land)

From: Laker Netman <laker_netman_at_yahoo.com>

I currently run a repository on my local machine (via svnserve running as a service). I am now ready to move the whole thing over to a server, where I will also have svnserve running as a service. The environment is all MS Windows.

Can I simply shutdown svnserve on my machine, move the entire folder structure to the other box and start up svnserve there? (Assuming my repo root is appropriately updated in the service command line, of course)
Or should I svnsync my repo to the new box, then start up the service there?
OR, do I have to do a svnadmin dump/load?

My goal is to keep all version history intact and not significantly grow the size of the repo in the move process (which appears would happen in the "dump/load" scenario, according to the SVN book).

If someone can suggest something or post a link to a FAQ or HOWTO that would be wonderful. I searched mailing list archive, but couldn't find anything fitting this particular case.
