I thought it would be nice to have several
versions of documents and sourcecodes stored for
debugging and ducumentation, but every few minutes taking
a copy drives me crazy, so i developed this
tiny tool in Visual Basic 6 to do the Job.
On my system i've placed it in the autostart
so every time the system starts the program
gets started too.
You can select the drive, directory and file
that should be watched and stored,
By double clicking the file gets opened
and you can start working with it.
The program then checks every 10 seconds
if the filedate and time gets changed ...
this happens when you click the save button
in your application ... and if this happens
the Historymaker creates a "History"-folder with in
the folder where the parentdocument is stored and
creates date-time-subfolders and places a copy of
the document in there.
In this way troubleshooting reduces to compare the files.
