Re: Using svn to sync to revision mp3 music collection (binary) result is double the storage

Thanks for the reply.

I have tried a network share, webdav, and rsync, but the beauty of svn is
the ssh tunnel (can sync from anywhere) and how it keeps track of the file
updates for you. One command and all your files come up to date. svn
also takes care of the issue of platform, since I'm trying to sync my
music between a mac, windows, and linux machine.
svn has all the benefits, but the only down side right now is the pristine
copies.

Any other ideas?

Steve
