Putting a repository on a network share is definitely a bad idea and you
will get corruption that way. You should always set up a proper server with
the repository files located where normal users can't even see them.

Putting a working copy on a network share can work sometimes as long as
only one person is accessing it. Sharing a working copy is just asking for

As to your original question, I don't know whether NTFS supports the
required level of locking, but I would say it's unlikely. Microsoft isn't
known for complying with any standards other than their own.
