If only I can understand what you trying to say...
Your problem was (is) as follow:
1. You have SVN server running
2. You start backup process without locking the SVN database
3. SVN server crashed, supposedly at the write operation to the file being
copied for backup, thus locked at filesystem level.
4. You tried to restore from a tape backup (by the way, from which date? From
date of crash or from previous date?)
5. ???
6. No profit

Am I right?
Without the errors text, I can't tell you much. Please post them.
And please disable HTML messages format.
