I generated the following statistics from a number of active eprints archives on 3 March 2005.

All disk-usage values are in megabytes.

                                             ratio of     average    total

This shows that the only significant factor in the storage requirements of an archive is the document storage.

Some archives have more eprints-with-documents than live-eprints. This is because some eprints-with-documents are either not yet approved for the live archive, or have never been submitted for approval.

The average size for an eprint varies but is under 5 megabytes.
