I have done a svn export from the previous version and have the data. Do I have to add and again commit this data ? Will it use up 1 TB of disk space on the svn server ? Is there any way i can restore the data from the previous version without using up 1 TB of disk space ?
You may want to review the sections of the book dealing with "Undoing Changes" and "Resurrecting Deleted Items", starting here:
If done correctly, this should not end up taking a lot of space in the repository.
You may also want to upgrade to the current version of Subversion, 1.6.13; Subversion 1.4.x and earlier aren't supported anymore.
