You didn't seriously thought that a Windows Server 2003 has such
limitations?! If you installed on FAT32 you made something really
wrong. ;-)

I created a powershell script to convert my 1.4 repos to 1.7 some
months ago, few months later we moved all repos to our Ubuntu
development server and last month or so I upgraded svn to 1.8, without
the possibility of a full dump/load because of my not working script
anymore. One shouldn't start with platform specific console scripting
anymore unless it's about really trivial stuff. It's to easy these
days to change platforms.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
