If the drive is on a networked drive then yes. Local drives should be fine, assuming you're the only one using it. AFAIK the trouble happens when you get one or more people using :local: over a network link -- Sometimes the network can cause file truncation or corruption. It's rare, but it is better to be a little paranoid than risk loosing the entire history of some of your source files!! CVSNT uses a lot of small file write / rename in quick succession that (I think!) stresses a network link more than a 'typical' application would. -- Glen Starrett
