Setting up Mercurial
I've been working on setting up version control on a company LAN using the setup described in this tutorial.
The central repository is located on a Mac OS, with the developers running either a Windows or a Mac OS. The developers are then pushing and pulling from the central repository to a local repository without any issues.
Then I noticed that the central repository folder appears duplicated in Windows Explorer ('CentralRepo' and 'CentralRepo-1'), yet when logged in as admin on the Mac OS hosting the central repository, this folder cannot be located. The duplicated folder can only be seen on a Windows computer.
Is it a temp folder? Is there anything that can be done to remove this duplicated folder?
I raised this question on stackoverflow, and I got the following prompt response from Robin Green.
"I don't think this has anything to do with Mercurial. It's just some Windows or Samba screwiness. Because of the nature of a DVCS, you should never need to use Explorer to view the remote repo, so just ignore it."
