I am currently using source tree for my mercurial repos, I store the repo's on a local server for multiple people. I used to use SMB share but ran into random issues when pushing/pulling. Did some research and found that SSH tunneling was the best solution for this.
Recently it seems when I do a update to a branch, it will sometimes, eject my drive. For mounting I have used transmit, and now expandrive, both with the same result.
Is this a issue with SSH, Sourcetree, or the server it self?
Any help would be appreciated.
Yeah an SMB share is not very reliable for use with Git or Mercurial. What do you mean by 'SSH tunnelling' though? Do you mean running the SMB protocol over SSH? If you're using SSH, why not just use SSH push/pull directly instead with a SSH URL? That's how I set up all my hg repos.
I don't know specifically about ejecting the drive, my guess would be that the tunnelling via SSH/SMB is a bit fragile. If it were me I'd just use a SSH URL directly (no SMB) for the hg remote - you can always use SMB separately for simple file access.
