Deleting the latest 2 revisions

I'd like to resurrect all the top folders of our repository. They were
mistakenly deleted by a user.

The deletion was done in 2 commits. They are the last commits in the

I know about reverse merge and copy to restore deleted files or
directories, but I wonder if there is another way. I am afraid that
undoing the delete using these will cause the repository size to triple,
if not more (there were many branches).

So I have 2.5 questions:

1- I know that Subversion only stores deltas but how does it deal with
deletion like this? Will it increase my repository size considerably?

2- Also, if someone had a branch checked out with local changes, will
the the link back to the restored folder be problematic?
