AJC Active Backup 1.1
AJC Active Backup monitors the files you change on your PC and then automatically and silently backs them up into a compact archive.
You decide which folders and file types are backed up.
The archive stores multiple revisions of each file you edit. Think of it as a revision control system for your hard disk. This means you can get back any version of a file giving you unlimited undo capabilities and also you have a complete record of what you have been doing. It also has the built in capability to show you a comparison of your files so you can see what has changed.
There is very little extra load on your PC due to the way it operates in the background. You just see a subtle indicator in the Windows taskbar status area. The backup archives are generally very small because they are compressed and only the changes to each file are stored each time a new revision is added. There is an automatic purge facility to save you disk space by stopping the archives from growing too large.
Even if you have a centralized revision control system and do regular backups AJC Active Backup is of great value because it backs up every time you save a file without you having to think about it. Your archive is always up to date whereas your other backups may be hours or days out of date.
AJC Active Backup is a must for any serious PC user who values their work. To name but a few, programmers, web designers, documenters would benefit from this. I can honestly say it has saved me from trouble on several occasions !
