Just thought I would share this one with you, which is a very simple and helpful solution for managing your CCS projects across different computers without getting your knickers in a twist saving and moving different versions between your work/home desktop and laptop.

Dropbox []

It's a real cinch, just set it up on all of your computers, set your project folder as a dropbox folder and Dropbox synchs all your files to your account in the cloud (like exchange server but for files).
Every computer with dropbox installed automatically updates to the latest version.

The real beauty
It even keeps every saved version for 30 days.
So every time you save a CCS page on any computer, it will keep versions of all the related files. If ever you need to go back to an earlier version, provided it is within 30 days, you can restore any files!

The only thing you may need to tweak is that the name of your ODBC Data Source Name for your connection settings is the same between computers. No big deal though.

Thanks for sharing Andy. This is an ideal solution for one or two folks
that communicate heavily their program differences. However, it should
not be relied upon in a large development group as a replacement for
SVN/CVS where file differences are key in versioning control (built into
CCS already).

I do wish these online backup systems were available five years ago when
I used to regularly tear out my hair from lost files! :)
