I care about file history because I'm hoping to have something like version control for DAW files.
Here's an interesting thread describing a product that goes in that direction:

I'm not familiar with the world you're describing (music/daws) but I'll chance asking:
why not use a dedicated app?
You would presumably have more control. Filehamster (FH) is the only one I know that allows you add comments to the saved version. It's limited in ways, but it works. (I'd dearly love if they developed that whole aspect of FH but they show no interest.) I use FH for some jobs, and Syncovery (formerly SFFS) for the others (where I dont need comments). Snycovery is more dependable in my experience and may be able to do partial file backup which would save you a lot of space (sounds like that work can be big).-tomos (April 15, 2013, 09:12 AM)
some false positives are far better than an overlooked virus...Tell that to a couple of my customers after AVG decided that the lower filter for the Xen disk subsystem was a virus. No problem there until their boxes were rebooted, which resulted in a nice 7B bsod.

When an antivirus reports a virus, any user should always verify if that is true or not (false positive) before deleting any files.
This should be taught to new users.-Giampy (April 26, 2013, 02:57 PM)
I think you have to take a more measured approach. What I usually do is disable *automatic* updates. Then, a week (or more) after update Tuesday and all of the furor has died down, I download and install the updates manually. I just don't want to trust anyone to automatically do anything to my computer. Because if it borks up, are they going to take responsibility for it?
I'll evaluate and decide whether to take the risks, and take the responsibility for my choices. I've been bitten once about 15 years ago... and to a large extent, that was my fault, as I was hosting my own web site when code red came out and wasn't keeping up to date. It hurt, but at least it was my fault.
In this case, it hurts... but it's nothing that I did. And that's a hard pill to swallow, especially since it seems I'm now looking at several hours to restore his computer. Thankfully, nothing is lost, but it's still a pain, and a drain.-wraith808 (April 13, 2013, 11:53 AM)
because you have taken away my ability to send notes over my network. Now you want me to use a paid subscription service just to be able to send a note to a computer in my own home network.
Well, the subscription comes with lot of other things. If it is your own computer, you don't have to send sticky notes back and forth. Subscription comes with syncing of sticky notes between your computers so that you have the same copy of sticky notes everywhere. Plus, when you have the subscription, you create/access sticky notes from any smart-phone such as iOS (iPhone/iPad), Android etc.-conceptworld (April 21, 2013, 06:22 AM)
In order to take several bigger steps in future, we have had to take couple of steps backwards. If you look at the whole picture, you will learn several benefits of the new model.
Subscription is free for the first year. So one has nothing to lose. It is win-win.
But it is his fault and not the fault of Microsoft or XP. He is the one making the FlashWindowEx API call that is overriding my OS defaults.
Sorry, I didn't know there was a way to override the defaults. Please do explain how to overrid the defaults so that we can follow the standards. This is better than providing an app specific option. Please do email directly to support [at] conceptworld [dot] com, so that we don't fill this thread with conversations not beneficial to others.
