)-- “There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who HAVE a regular backup and those who WILL.” –David Pogue (The Missing Manuals)
Most computer users have lost computer files or overwritten files that took hours to create. A disaster scenario is when last week’s version of project work can’t be recovered. That’s when some form of version backup management is really needed. Computer programmers have used version control tools for years, but there is nothing available for non-developers who need version management (like Adobe Creative Cloud or Microsoft Office users).
Current backup and versioning processes are either too complex (programming tools), impractical (macOS Time Machine or Windows File History), or error-prone (manual backups).
As the editor of Better Software magazine, Ken Whitaker uses Spresso iVersionIt to take snapshots of an author’s articles and associated files (biography, figures, and tables). Each article is treated as a project and a version backup is made at each handoff (there are four milestones for each article). Spresso iVersionIt saves the day whenever an article required a reset to a prior version.
Setting up a project for version backups couldn't be easier. Tell Spresso iVersionIt where the folder (containing project's digital assets) is located. When a version backup is needed, click the Save a Version action button and enter in a brief description of the milestone. iVersionIt will increment the version number and perform the backup. Recovering a project is easy, too. Click the Restore a Version action button and select which version backup to restore. iVersionIt will replace all of the project's files from the version backup.
Spresso iVersionIt is available for immediate download and use. Single-user pricing ranges from free to $10 per platform (Windows or macOS) and can be installed on your personal computers. No subscriptions, no cost for technical support, and complimentary software updates. To learn more, browse to www.SpressoiVersionIt.com
Leading Software Maniacs (LSM) creates apps, provides technical editing services, puts on workshops on leadership, performs organizational transformations, and deep-dives into the creative arts. LSM tries to be a good company in all work performed. It is our intention to deliver more (much more) value than a customer expects. For technical editing assignments, we may not charge for all of the hours project work actually took. Rather than place time-limit trials on use of LSM apps, we'll make a free edition that can be used forever.
