I have a usecase where I need to version control large files. However, I don’t want the files to be downloaded the the git repository folder, but to somewhere else. Is it possible to manage the files with DVC inside of the repo (have the .dvc files there), but upon dvc pull then the data gets places elsewhere on the system?
Sounds like you are looking for get
Thanks for responding!
From that page:
dvc get copies the target file or directory (found at path in url) to the current working directory.
This is exactly what I do not want. I want to keep the large files outside of the repository, but still manage them from within the repository.
