Backing up source files managed by source control software: TortoiseSVN

I am new to source control and I am confused with something I read on a webpage yesterday (I don’t have the link). I have followed these instructions: “create folder structure”, then “Start Reprobrowser”, then copy source files into trunk folder. Please see the screen shot below:

  • Svn error “Previous operation has not finished”
  • SVN control of a shared virtual machine folder
  • Compare files between two branches in TortoiseSVN
  • SVN Externals unexpected state issue
  • How do I download code using SVN/Tortoise from Google Code?
  • Tortoisesvn Subversion 1.8 - merge - no more reintegrate a branch option
  • However, when I navigate to the folder using Windows Explorer I do not see this folder structure. I see this:

    Therefore I am wandering: where are the files physically stored? The reason I ask is because I want to ensure that NetBackup (corporate backup tool) backs up the correct directories.

    To make sense of the repository structure you need to read all the documentation on SVN, but the preferred way to backup a SVN repository is through the command

    svnadmin dump your_svn_repository_path > destination_filename_backup.svn

    You could put this command in a scheduled task running sometime before your corporate tool execute the full backup of your data and include the destination_filename_backup.svn in your backup job

    If you ever need to restore the backup (after recreating the repository) you could use the command

    svnadmin load your_svn_repository_path < destination_filename_backup.svn
