“Automatic Backups” is a plugin by SteveCooper.
When you edit text files (scripts, prose, whatever) you often find yourself wishing for an older version. This plugin takes a copy of every file you save and copies it into a backup directory structure, ensuring that you never lose an old version of the file.
You can download the plugin from sublimetextwiki.com/SteveCoo … gin.py.txt
