Something I've found really useful (although I've not tried it for dev stuff, just downloads, vids and a few docs etc) is Windows File History - think it cropped up in W8, but I've got it set up to write to a share on a WD MyCloud nas box - works transparently (Well, I've never noticed it doing anything), and makes it really easy to revert - either through file properties, or by pulling a physical copy from the backup location...

Speaking of the My Cloud - it's a really good bit of kit - just sits there and gets on with it (and allows "secure" remote access - which works through a java applet which maps the drive across t'interwebz and makes it appear as a "local" drive), and it also comes with an alternative backup tool which allows backups to Dropbox....combine this with the above, and you're probably golden Big Grin | :-D ...think the tool is available separately too, but costs for an advanced version IIRC...

<edit> WD Smartware is the backup tool[^]
C# has already designed away most of the tedium of C++.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
