Subject RE: Creating and Verifying a Reliable backup
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2016 09:04:16 GMT

To ensure the integrity of a backup close to 100% I go the fail safe way:
2. svnadmin dump to dump the current repository
3. svnadmin load the dump into a fresh repository
4. svnadmin dump the newly loaded repository
5. compare the first and the last dump

>I like this suggestion. What I think I will do ultimately is check out the entire repo
somewhere, check out the >entire hotcopied repo somewhere, and check all the files against
one another.

"check out " "check out" "check all"
But that only checks the working copies so doesn't check the repository structure and hence
the history.  Comparing the dumps does that.
