Hotcopy is a snap of working SVN repository.
If you're concerned, you could just point your SVN tools to the new repository
made from backup and see if it works the way you expect it to be. Then switch
main server over to the new location.
The txn dirs likely indicate stalled transactions, lookup documentation about
the ways to cleanup repository from them.
Yet again, you should not be need to mess with hotcopied files by hands - only
using standard Subversion utilities.
