We are migrating our data to a new H-NAS server. So, I planned to move our subversion repositories to a shared drive in the H-NAS server.
Instead of moving the data using
svnadmin dump <reponame> > reponame.file, I used
cp -prf /source/<reponame> /dest/.
When I did this everything works, but still I would like to know if this is the right way to do it. Also, when I copied the repositories, the data size was more in the copy. Why is this?
