Putting an entire drive under GIT version control?

0 votes

Im putting together a thumb drive that boots into an evil operating system (yes, that one), and has some applications and data on it. It would be nice to have the whole thing under version control. Yes, I know this is unconventional.

It seems to me that I might create a folder for this project, which would contain the repository, and a shortcut to the drive (/dev/sd_n_), and track the shortcut as a binary file.

Im new to VCS, but I know about the concept of filters for binary files. Is there one for ntfs? I dont think I would track changes to individual files, but rather track changes to sectors.

Any help at all will be appreciated, even if youre just telling me that this is impossible or impractical.

There's a challenge that i'm currently facing after migration from WINCVS to GIT. The problem here is I need to pull/fetch a specific branch (and NOT clone the entire repository) from the repository to a particular location on the AIX server.

Earlier while using WINCVS this functionality was achievable using JCVSExport package as we could just checkout a particular branch and fetch the package on to the server location.
WINCVS Command : java JCVSExport -h -u abcde -p xxxxxx -d /abcd/cvs/testing -c "$REPOSITORY" -m "$PACKAGE"

I am not able to achieve the same functionality using GIT. I DO NOT want to clone the entire repository on the AIX server instead I just want to fetch/pull a specific branch contents on the server. Can someone please help me out with the solution or any possible way with which I can achieve the same functionality.
