        I think I might have ask this question before... Can i use
"svnsync" as backup and restore mechanism? Can i restore the svn
repository completely with svnsync? I understand that I may not be able
to restore properties, hooks from svnsync, and what else?

The svnsync command replicates all your versioned files, and their
attendant svn properties. It does not copy your hooks or conf
directories from the source repository, so you will need to do those
manually (and will need to install at least one hook in the target
repository to allow the user as which you run svnsync to update the
properties of the replica; this is needed so that svnsync can set
various properties of the replicated files).

        Thank you.
