Help with bad checksum when trying to use svn dump

Hi all,


I have been running SVN for couple of years and now trying to migrate my
repository to a new box. I thought that I could just take the files across,
but no it seems that you need to do export/import using svn dump (glad to
find out since I have been just backing up my SVN files for years, so those
backups would not been any use).


Anyway, when I am trying to do svn dump I get bad checksum for one revision.
I have been searching answer for hours, but cannot find how I can export the
repository with this error. I would be happy to just ignore that revision
from the export if I can get all other revisions across. So, my question is.
Does anyone know how to:


1) Fix bad check sum

2) If not fixable then exclude the bad revision from the svn dump

3) Or even better recover the SVN repository from files without use of svn


I am running SVN under Windows Server 2003.


Thanks for your help in advance,
