I have a beta of my new program called Save-It. I would like some feedback if you can play with it a bit.

What it is:
Save-It is a type of revision saving software. You create an archive and add files to it. Then on-demand you create a snapshot and if any of the files in the archive have changed, the new version is added to the archive. It saves all versions of a file so you can go "back in time" to get a previous version.

I wanted an app that I can run on-demand and not always run in the background taking up my resources.

There is no help file yet as I try to put it off until I really need to make it. LOL

Quick rundown on how to use Save-It:

Once Save-It is installed you can create a new archive in 2 ways. One is right click on an explorer window or desktop and select New>Save-It Archive the other is to run Save-It and from the File menu choose New Archive.

You then drag and drop files or folders onto the dialog and Save-It will add those files to the archive. Save-It is not meant for large files, more for source code, text files and documents. But play with it and see if you can break it.

Once your file are added you can close Save-It. If you then change one of the files that you added to the archive, you can take a snapshot and Save-It will add the new version of that file to the archive.

To create a snapshot, you can right-click on an archive (.KAR) file and choose Take Snapshot or you can double click on an archive and open it and choose Take Snapshot from the menu.

To recover a previous version of a file, open the archive and double click on the file you want. You will see another dialog that will allow you to restore a previous version.

That's all for now. Play with it and let me know what you think.

Neat stuff. Any way you can display the file hash in the main window? (Yes, I picked apart a .kar file).

I did an update. Give that one a try.

The hash is the MD5 string of the file. It is already in the table just set to a width of 0. I'll add an option so it displays or have it display all the time, not sure which yet.

I like this program alot. I'll probably use it as a source solution for code projects, it's a real gem. Is this going to be a commercial product?

Glad you like it. I think it turned out very well. I was thinking about it making it a commercial app, but not sure how to market it. I have tried before with other apps with no luck. I may try on VDS World and see how that goes first.

Need more testing though, so try and break it! Smile

If you have any suggestions or ideas, please let me know.

I love this app Smile Any chance you can add SAVEPOS and save the size so that it opens with the last size and position?

There is an update to Save-It. This version has a few new additions and tweaks.

- Added a Reopen list to be able to open the last few archives.
- Column Views menu to select what columns to show/hide
- check for update option
- added Help menu item (renamed from About)
- hide table when updating list to make it faster
- fixed bug in delete file option. Previously only removed on file at a time.
