I think there are three basic options...

1. Back up to tape... this is what we do. Yes, we possible lose intra day stuff but it is
a risk we are taking.

2. use svnadmin hotcopy to copy the repos to a separate drive system.

3. use svnsync to mirror all the repositories. This also gives you a psuedo hot swap situation.
Of course, you have to have the hardware available to do it, so this is probably the most
expensive option.

Yes, very basic level answer I know.
