How to protect your files while out on the road

    Have you ever experienced that horrible sinking feeling when you realize you
    have lost some work ? Maybe you deleted a file, over wrote it with another
    file or it has been corrupted etc. This can be very costly in terms of time
    and money and in the worst cases can land you in deep trouble.

    Now you can make this problem a thing of the past with AJC Active Backup.

    AJC Active Backup monitors the files you change on your PC and then
    automatically and silently backs them up into a compact archive. You decide
    which folders and file types are backed up.

    The archive stores multiple revisions of each file you edit. Think of it as
    a revision control system for your hard disk. This means you can get back
    any version of a file giving you unlimited undo capabilities and also you
    have a complete record of what you have been doing. No more restoring to
    last night's or last week's backup ! It also has the built in capability to
    show you a comparison of your files so you can see what has changed.

    There is very little extra load on your PC due to the way it operates in the
    background. You just see a subtle indicator in the Windows taskbar status
    area. The backup archives are generally very small because they are
    compressed and only the changes to each file are stored each time a new
    revision is added. There is an automatic purge facility to save you disk
    space by stopping the archives from growing too large.

    Even if you have a centralized revision control system and do regular
    backups AJC Active Backup is of great value because it backs up every time
    you save a file without you having to think about it. Your archive is
    always up to date whereas your other backups may be hours or days out of

    AJC Active Backup is a must for any serious PC user who values their work.
    To name but a few, programmers, web designers, documenters would benefit
    from this. I can honestly say it has saved my bacon on several occasions !

    How much is a days work worth to you ? $300 ? $400 ? Even a small mistake
    could cost you money, more than the $29 purchase price for AJC Active

    AJC Active Backup runs on Windows NT, 2000 and XP and costs $29 for a single
