RE: Subversion as a backup tool

We've _kind_ of done something like that... We have a bunch of Access databases on a shared network drive. Except now, we've shoved them into a repository, and unbeknownst to the users, they're now all working inside of a working copy. This insulates us from "I buggered up my database, help!" to at least a minor extent, as long as we remember to commit the WC every day or so, or get around to automating that.
Remember, though, that the WC holds a pristine copy of all files, which means its double the size of the versioned-content.
The branching and merging features are of no value (for this application),
I haven't tried this, yet, and suspect there may be unseen pitfalls, so
Thanks in advance
