As I work on 2 computers / one user; I put my RW projects on Dropbox.
But, when I work on a project, I’d like to back it up before working on it.
What should I do ?
Any one to help me?
It’s perfectly safe, recommended in fact, to make a duplicate of your project file in the Finder.
Single click on it in whichever directory it is and slide down to ‘Duplicate’, of press Command-D
Name it something like ‘BeforeIaddedtheBanner_site’ Good luck!
Thx for your help.
I thought about that solution, so I work on the copy, then if ok, I erase the original. The copy becomes the new original.
Is there any other solution to automate this?
Again thank you
Yes, you can certainly do that: the copy becomes the (new) main version; if satisfied, erase (or zip up and keep separately) the old original.
I actually tend to do it the other way around: work on the original, then revert to the copy if things go wrong.
Either way is fine.
I prefer the second way because you can then archive the copy as a snapshot of the file before you made the (now successful) changes.
RW6 does have a Versions and Autosave feature which will go some way towards automating this.
Thank you Mark
You’re very welcome! Good luck, Dominique
