thanks for the Linux options Shades - I'm on windows unfortunately!
File Hamster? That saves new revisions any time you save changes to a file - any file that you tell File Hamster to watch.
thanks Jim - I'm using Filehamster and it's great but I'm going to be restarting a job soon with over 1GB of files that I'll want to make regular revisions of -
that's why I was looking for something that would only backup the changes
in the file as opposed to the whole file
If I take what you say on board mouser about that type of backup not being so dependable, then maybe I should even avoid dropbox - or
have alternative backup of at least the last few versions locally (which I would do anyway)
So (just thinking out loud now :p) options would be something like:-
- Dropbox + small amount of local versioned backup
- Other online backup with e.g. 100GB* + small amount of local versioned backup
- Add large (1TB) drive to my computer & continue with local backup + external drive for off site backups + possibly online most recent versioned backups
ugh .. backup is always an issue - reason I found dc though iirc
* got an offer from Syncplicity for 100GB for $99 for the first year
(who knows what it would cost year two?)
