What are the Pros / Cons of a Data Management Studio file-based repository vs. DB-based repository

Are there any advantages to setting up Data Management Studio to use a File-based repository, vs. a DB-based repository? Is either one faster? Is either one more reliable?

Thanks!

Hi Mal, this DM Studio 2.6 user guide topic . .  .

Adding a File-Based Repository for the Client

. . . says:

"DataFlux Data Management Studio and DataFlux Data Management Server are installed with repositories that use an SQLite file for the repository database. File-based repositories are simple and reliable. They do not require a DBMS connection, and they might suffice for testing and training. File-based repositories are not recommended for multi-user access, however, due to locking issues. Sites typically create DBMS-based repositories for production systems."
