Let''s say you want to save a backup of your project exactly the way it is now. You''re going to make some big changes to your code, and if you mess up you want to come back to your nice clean original version. What''s the fastest way to do this? I guess you could just copy-paste the project directory and name the new directory something like "MyProject Backup." IS that the best way to do it?

a) copy the folder where your project files reside (include source and header files).

b) use visual source safe.

i recommend (b).

To the vast majority of mankind, nothing is more agreeable than to escape the need for mental exertion... To most people, nothing is more troublesome than the effort of thinking.

Yes, use Visual SourceSafe. It''s integrated into VC++ and
it''s very easy to use.

If I want to "experiment" and change some large amount of
code, I''ll first "check in" everything and/or put a "label"
on the latest version of all the files. Then I''ll go ahead
and make the changes. If they don''t work and I want to
go back, it''s just a simple matter of "get latest version"
or "get label" from VSS.

It''s also nice to be able to look back at all the different
versions of the same file.

Don''t do any large programming project withtout some sort
of version control.

I have Visual SourceSafe installed but I''ve never used it. What is it exactly and how do you use it?
