In our process (windows world): work is done on a local drive that is
not backed up. Developers are not allowed to commit work in progress
that does not build with 0 errors and 0 warnings and pass Build
Verification Tests. Developers use the TortoiseSVN "Create a Patch"
feature to create patch file of all changes and store the patch file in
their sandbox on a networked drive that is backed up nightly. The Idea
is to not lose more than a day's work, and to only backup changes not
the entire workspace and to not bloat the repository with lots of
personal branches by using it as a temporary sandbox. Maybe you could
do something similar?
