Here's a related Windows tip: System Restore may be backing up files
from your WC for you. Maybe you like that, but if not, you can disable
it. In XP go here using RegEdit:
Enter a value like this: "WC Dir" (REG_MULTI_SZ): C:\MyWC\*.* /s
Note that for Vista and Server 2008 there's a little more to do (see the
references for FilesNotToSnapshot).
