The box is pretty much dedicated as a development repository.
While monitoring I also occasionally see the cidaemon.exe process access the file.
This is the Windows Indexing Service, so perhaps I should turn that off and see how we go.

The only other things that are on the box are exported file shares where developers dump files such as documentation etc.
There is also a Sharepoint server running on it also for documentation, etc.
Both of these services would not be interested in the Subversion repository area.

I'll turn off Indexing and see what happens.
