Is there a reason you can't use a snapshot view?  It deals with copying
the files to your C: drive for you, _and_ it deletes the old ones too.

I've not tried.  I've done a manual maven build on a dynamic view and it
took 43 minutes, compared to 2 minutes on my snapshot view.  Bit that's
mainly because my clearcase server is in another country, and behind a
firewall.  Don't ask! I's a latency nightnare!
