One approach would be to use svnsync to keep a copy of the real repo somewhere
else (a different drive on the same machine or some other nearby machine)
running it fairly frequently - then make sure it does not run while the 3rd
party software backs up the svnsync copy. That should give you a consistent
copy - but be aware that svnsync doesn't copy the config or hooks and doesn't
check for property changes in already copied revisions.
