SmartVersion Full Description
SmartVersion lets users store different versions of their files easily, and makes retrieving any previously saved version just as simple. This is especially useful for users who need to save their work in incremental steps. Examples include programmers keeping track of different versions of their software at the various stages, business people working on proposals, graphic designers who make frequent adjustments to their art, writers experimenting with different ideas for manuscripts, and webmasters experimenting with different styles of webpages. All these users, and many others, who constantly update and change their products, and yet have a need to retrieve previous versions of their work, will find a lot of value in SmartVersion, a tool that will help them save time and money.
When users work on files which need to be changed frequently, they either constantly overwrite previous versions so they work on a single file only, or save each version as a separate file. Overwriting seems to be a convenient and resource saving method of working, until they need to retrieve previous versions of their work. When this happens, they have to waste time by either undoing all their work, or even starting from scratch. Alternatively, if users try to save every single version of their work as separate files, this inevitably results in unnecessary, virtually identical extra files which waste valuable harddisk space.
SmartVersion provides is a practical alternative by keeping track of subsequent versions of saved files as updates or patches of the original file. Unlike other patching schemes, SmartVersion is also not limited to working with software products, or providing single version upgrades, making it the perfect archiving solution for a greater variety of users.
SmartVersion is the perfect archiving solution for users who want a smart, practical and more effective way to save and retrieve different versions of their work.
