A new version is up, and it's now a full-blown sublime package. Also, I've included it in my new set of packages that are automatically downloaded by my package downloader (https://forum.sublimetext.com/t/package-release-packagedownloader/38/1)
This means that if you install both, you shouldn't need to worry about upgrading, because you'll be able to do an 'auto-update' to get new versions of the package.
When you edit text files (scripts, prose, whatever) you often find yourself wishing for an older version. Ever accidentally deleted a chunk from an important configuration file, or wished you could roll back a document a few hours? 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.
Once installed, any file you save will be copied into your documents folder, eg \Sublime Text Backups. For example, if you change c:\autoexec.bat, you'll get a backup saved to:
c:\Documents and Settings\yourUserName\Sublime Text Backups\c-drive\autoexec-2008-03-22-22-22-46.bat
That end bit is the timestamp, so you can see when the file was edited.
To install it, download the package from sublimetextwiki.com/sublime- ... me-package and save it to c:\program files\sublime text\Pristine Packages. Then restart Sublime Text.
If you want to back up your files somewhere other than your documents folder, you can add an option. To change where all backups are made, open the Preferences menu and choose Preferences. Then double-click Application, and add a line like this to the end of the file;
backupDir c:\my files\archive\
To see if it's working, open the console with the View | Console menu item. When you save a file, you should see a line like this, indicating that the file has been backed up;
Automatic backup: backing up to d:\backups\C-drive\Documents and Settings\steve\Application Data\Sublime Text\Packages\User\AutomaticBackupsPlugin-2008-03-22-22-22-46.py`
