Re: Moving a repository (in Windows-land)

Thanks. And regarding the repository growing, I think I misinterpreted part of the section "Migrating Repository Data Elsewhere". I thought, perhaps, since "svnadmin dump" expresses every file in full (page 128), that a subsequent "load" would not re-compress the differences. However, since a "copy and paste" will suffice in my case, that is what I will do. Thanks for the tip on '--relocate'.

Yes. A repository contains nothing that is outside that structure, which you
can freely move around.

It shouldn't grow in size, as I understand it, can you tell me what you're
referring to?

The other thing you will have to watch out for is existing working copies,
those still point to the old location of the repository. Take a look at
the 'switch' command with the '--relocate' option.
