Hello,

I am new to subversion/subversive and after various problems during the last two days with the subversion eclipse plugin we switched to the subversive plugin and finally managed to check out our project without any errors.

However, I noticed that the project we have imported into svn via the "svn import" command is half the size compared to the project after checking it out. So the project we imported is about 1.7GigByte and after checking it out it uses 3.2GigByte on our hard drives. Is that normal? Of course you can see .svn directories all over the place in the checked out project but do these files really accumulate to 3.2GigByte?

Best regards,
syrvn

I guess you mean "subversion eclipse plugin" -> Subclipse. While
Subclipse is being developed by the original Subversion creators,
Subversive is the official Eclipse project providing SVN Team support.

This is not Subversive related, but general Subversion/SVN question.
Yes, the .svn directories contain pristine copy of the version
(the BASE revision) of the files you've last checked out (so you
could do diff and stat against that without network access, for
example), and the size of the working copy is essentially double of
the size of the exported (or previously imported) copy.
