comment How to upgrade a 1.4.3 TortoiseSVN-created repository to 1.6.x?
not so: "svnadmin upgrade" is all you need to do. Ok, you won't get sharding by default as your repo will stil be in a single directory, but other than that, you'll be running with the 1.6 format.

comment C:\ is for OS, D:\ is for Data?
I'd say logs and temp were separate because they had the potential to be filled with crap from a rogue user - as the OS is usually a shared, multi-user environment. I'd not sure reliability was as much a factor.

comment Version Control for print designers and editors
no, you cannot merge binaries in SVN. With text files you can cherry pick revisions to merge.. that simply would not work (sensibly) with binary files. Instead you get to choose which one to take (ie as a 'merge' would otherwise be a windiff-style merging that takes one file and turns it into another, you might as well take the final result). However, you can diff/merge with known binary types (eg jpg) where the diffs make sense and could be merged. (eg araxis.com/merge/topic_comparing_image_files.html) - see TortoiseIDiff for a less-featured version.
