ideas?


I currently writing several novels. When I write, I will go back and edit, then save multiple copies, just in case of hardware failure.

What method could I use to ensure the copy I am using is the very latest? I have found that I sometimes go back and start editing an older version of saved copy.

-Save the copy as something different title wise.

-Use "open recent documents" to select your well, most recently opened document.

-Use multiple folders to keep track of the new and the old.

What I started to do was save it as a date formatted like YYMMDD so it would sort correctly before the name of the book, but I have to believe there is a better way

Recent documents is the best I can offer truthfully.

Re: ideas?


type out the time, name of book/document in a separate folder, and add the time with the original to show when you did it and on what day?
