A Windows service running as the default system account cannot access a network share. Try changing the 2 Windows services we installed to run with your specific user credentials. This can be done from the Windows Services control panel output.

Since you are on Windows 2008 R2, I would also recommend that you do not use the UNC path name. Instead, you can delete the dumps folder in C:\csvn\data and replace it with a link to the network share. For example, open a command prompt as an Administrator user and do this:

> cd \csvn\data
> mklink /D dumps \\CompName\data\dumps

This will create a folder named dumps that is actually a link to the network share. In SVN Edge, you can then leave it configured as C:\csvn\data\dumps. This will resolve any issues Java might have with the UNC pathname as Java will think it is working with your normal C:\ drive. I still think you need to make the service run as your user account even if you do this option, but you could try just doing this first.
