Re: repos on a USB flash drive

I do exactly the opposite - i.e. repos is on server acessible via net
and working folder is on flash. Reason is, first our source is
sensitive so thius way working folders aren't lying round on PC's,
second if flash gets lost or corrupted (once I plugged one into a
machine where the usb + and - wires had been crossed - boom! Dead from
then on) you've not lost the repos and also for the growth reasons you
mention, we can selectively prune working folders as needed, you can't
do this with the repos. Anyway the repos on flash is a non-starter for
us as the team need access 24x7.
