Message Yes, that is correct. Subversion keeps a pristine copy of every file in your workspace so certain operations (such as revert and in certain cases diff) will operate quickly and without network overhead. The real question is why you have 7gb of versioned information. This tells me that you're storing large binary files in svn, which typically indicates an issue with what you're using svn for (i.e. are you versioning movies or other assets where most of svn's features don't apply?)

Hope this helps,

Ben

Subject: co module is 100 % larger than import


I'm real new with subversion so this may be old hat... but I happened
to notice that following my first import of a project sized at 7.2
GB.(Just using du -sh proj), when I checked out the same project its now
14 GB... very close to 100% increase in actual size.

Is 100 % overhead the usual amount that people see?
