You must use webdrive to get get regular drive letter.

This might help you get going:


Webdrive is not free, but it's very affordable IMO.

Got it working with "Network Places" so far. I'll look into webdrive for
mounting as a regular drive letter. is that a free utility or do I have to
buy it? (Can you tell I'm cheap? :-) )

Cool, Thanks for the info. I'm review the docs now. My next question
though is what is the syntax for mounting such a drive in windows? I've
tried the obvious:


Net use k: http://.....


But that didn't work.

If you use webdav autoversioning, you don't need a job at all. If your users
are on windows, you can use webdrive to mount the repository as a regular
drive on their machine and everything will be completely transparent to the

I'm considering trying to use Subversion as kind of a poor mans replication
server. Something like this:


1) Set a repository on my backup server

2) Check that repository out to two other server each at remote

3) Have a scheduled job on the remote machines that commits the
directory recursively then an update every few minutes.


I'm just toying with this idea and I'm sure there are some major pitfalls
I'll likely encounter, but right now my question is, is there away to have
the commit process automatically add any new files/directories to the
repository without having to issue separate command for each such
file/directory? My hope is that I could get this replication to happen
without end users having to remember to explicitly add things to the repo.
I want them to be able to just save stuff in said directory and just assume
that it will get added to the repo next time the job runs. Ideally I'd like
the same kind of thing to happen for deletes, but I'm guessing this would be
even less likely to be an option.
