First, I will assume you mean you wish to hotcopy "to" a network drive
from a Subversion repository (which is using BDB filesystem).

As far as I understand, the BDB network drive limitations are related to
   locking (and hence multi-user access).

In your case, there will only be one process (hotcopy) writing to the
network drive location, so it shouldnt be an issue.
