Just to have this mentioned: Be aware that the working copy (aka: the
checked out data of the repository) will have a 2x storage requirement
on the data since it will keep a copy of the pristine version of the
file in addition to the "actual" file.
If this is a concern for your use-case, you could export the files and
only use a working copy in cases where you need to commit or reorder files.

To clarify: This is purely a client side storage requirement. It does
not apply to the storage requirements on the server side.
