In case you lose your disk, you want to set up the repository as it was. If
you have backed up everything under the repository root (including
specifically the CVSROOT directory with the admin files), it's a simple
matter of copying the complete repository backup to a new disk and pointing
a cvsnt installation to the restored repository. 

My CVSROOT directory is less than 2 MB, the rest of the repository is
several GB. 2 MB is not enough to waste any thoughts about backing it up or
not :)
