Hi, I previously posted about a problem I was having with Branching taking a long time (early April 07), I have since found part of the reason it was running so slowly and I thought I'd post this update in case it's useful for anyone else. It seems that the hard disk hosting the repository was VERY fragmented. I can't remember the exact figures but it was something like 70% fragmented. I'm not clear why the fragmentation is getting so bad, it may be an issue with the RAID controller we use, however implementing a weekly defrag has improved things a lot. We are now down to about 20mins to create a branch rather than ~1hr 30. Colin
