In case of a WC DB corruption I'd say your best bet is to do a fresh
checkout and copy over locally modified files from the old working copy
to the new one.

You can also try to debug/troubleshoot the database corruption and try
to repair the database (sqlite3 -> pragma integrity_check) but unless
you have a reason to try to save your working copy, there's little point
to do so, IMO.

Although I doubt it's related to the corruption you ran into: Your
VisualSVN Server is quite outdated. I assume you are running Visual SVN
Server 2.5.6. I'd certainly suggest you to upgrade your server to 2.5.26
at least (which will bring SVN up to 1.7.21). The upgrade should be as
simple as clicking through the installer.

If possible, you'd even upgrade to a later one which will bring SVN up
to 1.8 or 1.9 (currently VisualSVN Server 3.5.6 is the recommended version).

Regards,
Stefan
