Cleaning out a code repository

Capturing this for later deep dive, but if I want to cleanup a source repo for a quick drop somewhere else here's the types of files that usually take up YUGE space compared to the source code:

*.pix3, *.pdb, *.pch, *.ipch, *.db, careful with this one: *.lib

these afaik are not picked up by the default visual studio 'clean build' command, however *.obj will (and probably *.lib if part of the build process, but have not verified).
