Correct me if I am wrong. But our repo contains many big binary files that I never touch at all (zip files with textures updated by artists). And because I've swithed to SSD not long ago this now really matters me. Is there any possibility not to store copies for files more than X Mb in size? It will save ~10Gb for me.

That would be a change to core subversion functionality so you have to
ask for that feature on the subversion users list, not this one. I
believe such a feature has been mooted and may even be in development,
but you won't see it until at least subversion 1.8. In the meantime
you could use sparse checkouts as Uli suggests.
