I am using TFS and running compares against 2 branches directly from source control. When the compare runs it checks files out to a temporary directory. When I look in Visual Studio two workspaces have been created (SQL Source Control export).
Mapped to C:\\Users\\[UserName]\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\[RandomName]
My company recently switched to a new anti virus that does real time scanning. The real time scan can adds a significant amount of time to perform the compare. Our IT department is hesitant to put an exclusion for a the antivirus because the exclusion would have to be for the entire Temp directory. I understand this is not a problem with redgate products themselves as fully disabling the anti virus yields significant improvements in the compare times.
Can I change a setting or modify a config file to change the default location for these workspaces?
