I'm not sure this is a good answer in general for questions asked
on the users@ list, which is a free best effort support forum.

Loss of data is tragic, and it seems in this case that several revision
files (817-824) have been lost. It might still be possible to extract
a full text if any of the files in the 825-891 range were saved as full
texts, rather than deltas. This is the case for representations which
begin with a line saying
instead of
"DELTA <rev> <item_index> <length>\n"

Saurabh, are there any revision files among the 825-891 range which
contains contain lines saying just "DELTA"?

of it from last year, and have a incremental backup of it as well. Unfortunately my backup
system had problems and so the only thing I could retrieve from the most recent backup was
the "db" folder which has the revprops and rev folder and current file. Under the revprops
and rev folders, I notice the files in there are from 825-891. My backup from last year has
files from 0-816. So I'm missing files 817-824. Now I can open my last year's backup just
fine using Repo-Browser, but can't seem to open the most recent backup as it only has the
db folder. Is there a way I can merge all these files together without the missing files?
I use Tortoise SVN 1.7. Please help. Any help or advice is really appreciated.
