RE: [TSVN] Network Drives

Keeping the students' *Workspaces* with their source code on a network
drive should be *just fine*. The problem comes only when you try to put
a BDB *Repository* on the network drive to be accessed using file:///


If you set up a repository server using svnserve or Apache, your
students can keep their personal source code on their respective network
drives, and TSVN will not have a problem with it.

Subject: [TSVN] Network Drives


I plan to use TSVN with my final year student, each student has a
network drive that holds all their source code and is available to
him/her on any computer in the college. From what I have read TSVN will
not work.


Do not access a repository via the file:/// URL over a shared network
drive! Even if you have the network drive mounted to a drive letter! If
you do, your repository can (and most likely will) get corrupted and you
could lose all your data!


Can you suggest any solutions ?
