How can you calculate the size of a StarTeam project after a VSS wrap and native conversion has been carried out?
Firstly when a VSS wrap to StarTeam occurs it will not use a generic compression rate.
When you wrap a VSS database to StarTeam, all files of a certain
size will be compressed and stored as a .gz file in the StarTeam
Archive. The compression rate is not always the same and differs
according to file type and file size. Some files will be compressed
by 10 times the size of the physical file whilst others the
compression rate may be 3-5 times the file size.
To find out how big a 1 GB VSS database will be shrunk to, please check out the following:
Note: Ensure that no other StarTeam users are committing files
to disk as this will skew the figure.
