Can you post an exact command and error message, please? Also, what
platform was the repository created on, and what platform are you now
trying to recover the data on?

If you could show us the contents of the 'format' file in the top level
of the repository, and maybe an 'ls -lR' of the whole repository (that
is, a completely expanded listing of its files and directories) that
would help too.
