Getting Only the Files You Need: the Include/Exclude Facility

In some development situations, it makes sense to configure your workspace to contain a specified subset of the depot’s elements, rather than all the elements. The benefits can be quite significant:

  • Less clutter, allowing you to concentrate on the files that are important to you
  • Less disk space required to store your workspace on your machine
  • Faster backups of your workspace
  • Faster AccuRev processing of your workspace, especially during the Update command

See The Include/Exclude and Cross-Link Facilities for more information.
