estimate size of dump?

Hi all,

Is there a way to estimate the size of a repository dump _before_ generating it? My 25G repository filled 75G of dump then bailed out because of lack of disk space, so I'd like to know how much more space do I need to buy. Before you go telling me "get yourself a 1T external disk" I must underline that we have heaps of policies for requesting storage, for using storage, for NAS and SAN and RAID and whatnot so I really need to know how much I should ask for.

Or can I load a hot copy instead of a dump for restoring a repository? Probably not, but I'm really unsure what that hot copy can be useful for.

Thanks a lot,
