So the directory 5-6.txn below db/transactions showed:
- Number of files: 244295 (0 folders)
- Size: 88.6 MB
- Size on disk: 29.8 GB
(Wow, that's huge! For only 88.6 MB of data in 244295 files, that's a
factor of more than 300 compared to the actual data size)

And your working copy showed:
- 118094 files, 5350 folders
- Size: 903 MB
- Size on disk: 1.01 GB

What SVN version is the server? What SVN version is the client?
What version of back-end filesystem on the server (BDB or FSFS, which version)?
-> If you have a 1.9 server, please send the output of "svnadmin info
REPOS_PATH". Otherwise, send the contents of REPOS_PATH/format and of

The server is on Windows apparently. Which version of Windows? NTFS I
presume? Anything special about that disk? Any special settings?

Oh and one more question: do those files in your working copy have
many svn properties?
