If you insist upon keeping backups of your working copy, keep it
local, and schedule a task to copy it to your network location. But
don't continue using your WC on a network share after being told
repeatedly "don't do that" only to tell those same people you want it
fixed. You've been told about the problems. Either heed the advice
you've been given, or ignore it and live with the consequences.

Only if you're not committing your changes to the repository regularly.
