File History

File History is a small and simple tool for versioned backup. You select a set of files and can then save a snapshot of these files whenever you want.

A complete file history consists of only two files. One contains a link to the selected files and one contains the snapshots. A specially designed compression and binary compare algorithm are used to save the snapshots as efficient as possible.

The Explorer view shows all files and folders in a file history:

Explorer View

When you open a file history, all unsaved changes are marked and can be saved with a single click on the Save button.

The version list can be used to go back in time. A double click on a version shows the Explorer view as it looked when the version was saved. A double click on a file opens the displayed version of the file.

File History is FREE, download the latest version here:
