My IT department provides me with space on a file share on a server, which is backed up. Ideally I would like to work straight out of this directory because then backups are not my responsibility. However, running a build of my project takes 5 to 10 times as long if I do this.
I tried using the "make available offline" option but this did not improve the performance.
I tried setting up a daily job to copy my files over, but this puts responsibility for backups back in my hands, and if I do it wrong I could lose data.
Is there any way to transparently use files on a file share locally, while getting the benefit of automatic syncing? There is only one user (me) that should be using these files.
