in thread Curve fitting for rsync snapshot deletion

Note that git really wants to use memory mapped files when committing/restoring files. This means git has problems with large files, at least on 32-bit systems. For example, I could not store video files with a size of 200MB or so in a git repository.

Also, git cannot purge older backups or create "holes" in the history. You cannot age out old or intermediate backups. git wants to keep the full history.

Other than that, git has at least the user interface part of storing and restoring things done.

    Thanks for your post. This is definitely applicable to me. As most of my machines are 32 bit clunkers... barring my sparc64 boxes... but they have only 256MB of memory!
