Re: What to do when disk is nearly full

It's often possible to throw out a lot of old debris, by creating a duplicate of the repository that is much smaller. But for various reasons, NFS is a bad idea for Subversion repositories:

Look into the "svndumpfilter" tool for doing duplications of a repositories contents, with careful use of the "exclude" option. But "old file copies" is usually a misnomer: if the fle exists in *any* active branch, or is a base file for difference-recorded copies of the file, you don't gain much by trying to eliminate other copies of the file because Subversion uses a database, not merely copies of the file.

  Dear All,

  What should I do when the disk that SVN is on is nearly full ?

  I know I can migrate my repositories to a bigger disk. But is it also possible to :

  1. Move some repositories to NFS partitions
  2. Obliterate old file copies from some repositories ?
