RE: Checking disk space usage on the server.

I'm sorry. I should have been more explicit.

I'm mainly interested in the disk usage on the server.

I was thinking about the case where a directory is created by copying
another directory, by using the svn copy command. It says here that such
copies are very cheap disk usage-wise:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.0/ch04s02.html#svn-ch-4-sect-2.1. I'd like
to measure that.

If I create a new directory from an existing directory with the "svn copy"
command how much disk space is used to store the newly created directory?

As files are modified in the new directory I'm assuming the disk usage on
the server will increase as the links are replaced by actual files (or more
likely be replaced by the diffs between the original files and the changes).

I believe check outs by clients always download the complete file.

Doesn't your operating system provide tools to measure the amount of
diskspace a certain file is occupying? Or am I missing something?
