[TSVN] So, it's possible I did a silly thing...

I've been meaning to do something like this for a while, because my
system's annoyingly unstable and I don't like losing settings, and so
on. So anyway, I got the idea from CVS homedir - google it; the gist of
it is that the guy stores his linux home directory in CVS, so he can
take it with him whatever box he's working on and have a consistent

I want to achieve roughly the same thing with my Windows XP profile. So
I created a separate administrator account, logged on as that, and
imported my Pete profile into a local repo I created on a separate hard
drive. Fine. Moved the original out the way, checked out the versioned
copy, and I'm now writing this from a subversioned windows profile. Hurrah.

I didn't think about which bits I might not want versioned, like
internet cache, other temp things - I just imported the whole profile.

So. Given this oversight, I'm now faced with removing from source
control all the things I _don't_ want versioned. Presumably this is
best done from the repo-browser, rather than deleting things one by one
from the working copy?

Or is there a way to remove items from version control via the WC, but
_not_ deleting them from disk? I don't _think_ there is, but things
have moved on a little.

Anyway. If anyone has done something similar, please let me know how
you got on...
