Thread EWB Does Not Create Backup Files?

It seems that EWB does not create backups of the project files.

Is it by design or is there a setting that I can use?

AFAIk there is no backup feature today though it likely is on Tim's
future feature list.

While preparing the sample project for Tim's review, I knocked out the code from my working files and I was hoping to fall back on the backup files.

This will teach me to more vigilant on source control.

Apart from using source code control like git or subversion, you might like to look at something like AJC Active Backup. It takes copies all the time, and can recover intermediate versions that you haven't formally versioned. A .bak or other file is not likely to have helped, as you'd have probably saved at some point anyway.

I've been using a subversion control system for many years. Tortoise
works great for me.

I use TortoiseHg (Mercurial) for source control, and I have NovaBackup back up my projects twice a day in case I royally stuff them up.

I use Visual Sourcesafe with Delphi since it installed itself into the IDE and it is seamless.

For EWB, I do use Git but I sometimes forget to stage and commit the files.

I'll check out AJC Active Backup. Thanks for the tip.

Uli,

I haven't use Tortoise but Git which is suppose to be easier. Since EWB does not currently support a built-in source control system or a plugin, I have on a number of times forgotten to update the source control database after work.

It was lucky that I was only at the stage of building the interface of the project and I still had earlier commits or it would have been a big problem.

That is really taking source code protection seriously. Smile

Frederick,

<< It seems that EWB does not create backups of the project files. >>

What kind of backup are you referring to ?  A history of all updates to the source, or just a .bak containing the last edits ?
