This means your repository was corrupted somehow. "svnadmin verify"
checks the integrity of the repository where all of your data is
stored. Thus it is a first step in diagnosing unusual error messages.
Perhaps there was a hardware failure on the machine or the disk drive.
It is also possible that the Visual SVN installation had a problem,
because error reports began soon afterward.

If only a small number of revisions within the repository were damaged,
then it is possible that only a subset of the Subversion "file system"
would fail to work. Thus not everyone would get error messages.

You should paste the entire "svnadmin verify" error message (after
removing anything site-specific, like host names, from the URLs) so
people can help you identify the location of the error and suggest
fixes. You are providing only partial information. In particular,
summarizing the error message is not as useful as pasting all of it.

A fix may be as simple as restoring individual revision files from a
backup (you do have backups of the repository, right?), but the
Subversion users list needs to know more about the problems you are having.
