Ever made a mess of a file by saving something you were not meant to, and not being able to undo the disaster you created.
I have, lots of times. so i went in search on google for a simple 'incremental revision save' of files. To my dissapointment, most systems just seemed to complex for what I needed. I don't work in a team, or have the desire to setup up a client/server. Booking In and Out is not required. and I don't always have access to the internet.
I just wanted something really, really simple. To work as a standalone, small, single user. Did I mention Simple, like 123 simple.
It can do two things that will monitor a file for changes.
-Create a new file in the same folder as 'Backup Revision Folder.exe'
-Create a link from the tray menu, (the link is actually stored in the same directory as 'Backup Revision Folder.exe')Features
What File Revision Folder does when executed and running
- * It will monitor all the files in the folder it resides inside, and upon saving a file
- * Prompt the user with a interface to enter a breif description.
- * Save a copy of the changed file to the folder MyDocuments/Backup Revision Folder/example/example 2007_01_01 09_30.???
- * Append to a historylog file, the users popup interface, saved in MyDocuments/Backup Revision Folder/example/example_HistoryLog.txt
- * And most importantly, it is simple. Simple enough for kids and grandparents to use. ABC simple.
You can now continue to work on your original master file, knowing that there is a version saved to a backup folder.
You can run Backup Revision Folder.exe
straight from a Thumb drive folder,
which means it will save a version of the changed file to the current machines mydocuments folder. (or configured location)
