So any advise on the location of the temp folders?
And one more additional question, can I break up my repositories into 2 or 3 repositories? I mean, will the moved folders under new repository automatically adopted?

Thanks again..

Unless it moves/renames those temporary files to overwrite files in the repository. If the temp folder is on a different drive then it needs to copy, then delete rather than move, which is slower.

It would be interesting to see some benchmarks to see if this was true.
