SVN Overwrite & .SVN size

Hello All,
My organization are recently moving from a licenced
SCM system to Subversion.

But then we are facing some problems in SVN. It will
be of great help if anyone can help me with the
following issues:

1. The whole source tree is about 2 GB in size. But
unfortunatly after migrating to SVN when I tried to
checkout the code, its around 8 GB in size. Thats
mainly due to addition of .svn directories. Can I
avoid this?

2. SVN doesnt provide over-write option when we need
to checkout. In the current scenario I have some 10%
source's checked in and the rest are provided by a
third party. The code that is checked is used to
customize the third party software. Hence only the
files that is customized is checked in the SCM system.
It doesnt make sense to version control the third
party software. When I checkout I need to only
over-write the customized code i.e. checkout on an
existing folder. How is it possible through

Please help.

Thanking you in anticipation.
