Hi people!

Not been to DC for a while so not read the replies to my "save everything!" request. Hi gtoal, sorry my friend not quite but interesting. Amazing the things Microsoft don't tell you about. MilesAhead - this is a good little program.  Thmbsup Although you have to manually press save on the dialogue box which pops up (no problem), it does at least save whatever is in the focused window. Not tried it on all my programs, but I m sure it will work.
Tried Helmet again - still not keen.  Sad

Many thanks everybody....................keep coding!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grin Grin

Wow! ohmy I started something here! I am now way a coder, I wish I was. I understand most of what has been said so far, but still no closer to the holy grail. I guess most programs use the "ctrl + s" as a quick save. Could a small program do this automatically. It will save over the last save which is OK, but progressive saves would be better. I bow to the superior intelligence in DN land.  Wink

Hi All smiley

I have not posted for a while. My last posting on right click menu sparked a lot of replies! Wink
IDEA:
You have  a program running, say Notepad. Your typing away and then the computer or program crashes. All that typing gone forever.
How about a nice little program which could tap into (any) program and save at regular intervals.
To complicate matters how about adding a few refinements:
1. Allow the Auto Save Program (ASP), to save at different intervals for each different program.

2. Save a certain number of consecutive backups and then to delete the first one saved.....

3. Make a sound or visual that it is saving so you can pause for a moment.

4. Make ASP auto-start and simple to use.  smiley

5. Make it multi-tasking if you are running more than one program and auto save when you bring one or the others in focus.



They may be a program out there, but a Donation Coder one would be better!!
Happy coding.  Thmbsup Thmbsup Thmbsup

 smiley smiley :)Thanks everybody. Tried both the programs. The Shell View I like. Am afraid could'nt quite understand how Mmmm works. On going to the sites (Download.com - brilliant site!), I came across others but have settled on the following for it's simplicity:

This is from Revenger Inc.

Does exactly what I wanted.

Thanks again and regards to all at Donation Coder. Thmbsup Thmbsup

I know there are many programs out there (can't remember their names), which can add context menu choices when you right click on a file.
I', looking for a simple program or help in adding: "copy to folder", "paste to folder" and similar. Sad Thmbsup
Also, help on getting rid of some of the unwanted ones. I believe you can do it from the registry - i try to steer clear of that! Grin
Thanks Thmbsup
