Solving Large Repositories...

Hi All,

When a repos becomes very large, are there any "maintenance" procedures
to follow to archive away the "useless" data and reduce the size?

Eg, I've a repos, now 12Gb in size, but its working copy is 300Mb, 1
user, 50 revisions.

Now in a few months/years time the original data of early revisions may
be worthless (say from revision 10 and before).
I'm guessing that I'd have to create a new respos, transfer 10+ into the
new one, and then re-point all the clients to the new repos - but that
sounds like a nightmare (clients being out of sync, having to re-check
out the data again etc)..

Surely theres an easier way?

Adrian
