Re: TSVNCache.exe opens filehandles

I've had the same problem. My USB stuff all seams to work, I can I even tell TSVNcache to ignore them. However, my encrypted drives (DriveCrypt or TrueCrypt) show up as normal drives - so I can't tell TSVNCache to ignore them.
I've just adopted the practice of killing the TSVNCache process if it causes problems (I use Process Explorer from sysinternals.com). It always seems to come back and had not caused a problem. <rant>why is it that Win applications can not just tell you what application has a lock instead of just saying that it can't unmount a drive?? It's terribly frustrating. It got caugt a couple of times when TSVNCache latched onto some sub dirs near where I was working on files that were not under (T)SVN control.</rant>
Anyway, I don't blame TSVNCache, I don't know of a good way of handling it other than turning off all icons, but I've come to rely upon them too much for that course of action.

This also is a problem with USB flash drives which prevents them from being
stopped. I never noticed using Windows XP because I just unplug it, but now
using Windows 2000 at work where it needs to be stopped to unplug it safely
TSVNCache prevents it stopping.

It's also a problem when using an encrypted partition using Cryptainer which
prevents the encrypted partition from being unloaded because TSVNCache locks
the encrypted virtual drive.
