I am considering a use of Subversion as a means to avoid accidentally
deleting some important files that I will be working with on a regular
basis. I am very interested to get comments on my plan or suggestions
for alternative methods.
Here's the situation: I have ~1500 mp3 files (not pirated music), and
the collection is growing. The sizes range from ~100kB to ~300MB. The
content of these files will never change. The directory structure will
change, files will be moved, and new (additional) [mp3] files will be added.
So basically, I am considering the use of Subversion as a live backup of
sorts and a discipline/safety-net to prevent accidental deletion of any
part of a continuously growing data-set while I explore different data
organization and analysis strategies.
My primary concerns are related to any potential file corruption, any
data duplication, and/or any excessive network or disk I/O (other than
the expected load of direct data communication).
Again, any comments on [or analysis of] this plan, or suggestions for
alternatives will be much appreciated!
