CVSNT stores all the past revisions of each module using files on 
disk, including all tags, branch names, messages, options, etc. All 
those info goes on the repository dir and subdirs. You should back up 
those files regularly - do you???
In case the server crashes, and so badly that those files are 
corrupted, you must restore them from your backup - and lose just the 
commits made *after* the backup. If the repository files are OK, you 
don't lose anything.
