Versioning is a pretty useful concept. It basically means backing up documents and files before changes are made to them so that the user can revert back to a previous version if the need arises.
Versioning is not limited to text documents, it can also be used for images, scripts and any other file type.
AutoVer is a automatic software versioning application that monitors folders on your hard drive and creates backups of those files whenever they are changed. It's like a real-time incremental backup solution for all files in folders that you select.
The files are backed up automatically to another folder on the same drive or another storage location.
Each folder that is being monitored has its own settings which means the application is highly customizable. It's even possible to store the backup folder on a USB drive which gets synced whenever it is connected to the computer.
Update: We have reviewed a recent version of AutoVer here.
