I have a bunch of different versions of source codes to manage and have to store them locally. So, here comes the problem: How may I store them without using too much disk space?

I am not using version control system on them, because there are too many branches for each market and each big or small release, and more importantly I want keep them usable at anytime (without using some scripts to get a version from the library).

this is the consequence: git seems not that hard.. I am living well with them. – Jokester Dec 9 '11 at 9:44

  • NTFS supports single-instance storage. However, this is only available on Server versions of Windows.

  • You could set up a Linux server with lessfs or opendedup, and access it over Windows File Sharing.

  • "Too many branches" shouldn't be a problem with modern VCSs such as Git.

  • Or buy a bigger HD.

OpenDedup also works on Windows now. might be useful. – TiernanO Feb 21 '12 at 11:05
