I understand what your are saying but am a little concerned at the "To prevent corruption of CAB files" statement. From your experience is this a regular event?, what may cause this?, Are these easily fixed?
Hi Phil, Here's some general hints about collections. In the old days (pre 6.0), collections used to corrupt if you had large collections. That should no longer be an issue as cabs are now compressed twice and checked for consistancy. 10-20mb cabs are best practice due to performance issues. If you do a restore (temp or not) on a cabbed item, you have to decompress the whole cab to get at the individual item, then recab it up when the op is done. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but in the larger install bases it adds up.
