Which OS? Some operating systems have file size limits of 4 GB or less.

Subject: svn dump and load not preserving all files

I am migrating my repository to a new server. This requires that I
dump the original and the create a new repository on the new server
and use the svnadmin load command to import everything. I have been
able to do this for a few of my repositories, but one in particular
isn't working. The dump file for this repository is > 9 GB. The load
command starts out, but never finishes. The size of my repository
gets to 2.1 GB and then it seems to stop even though the svnadmin load
command is still running. Eventually (> 24 hours) the command stops
(finishes) but the size of my repository is only 2.1 GB when it should
be around 9 GB. Also, not all of the files have been restored.

Is there a limit in the size of a dump file that can be used? I would
be surprised if that limit were around 9 GB. I'm sure there are
repositories that are much larger than that.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?
