Gilles Vollant Software
Gilles Vollant Software introduces the latest release of SmartVersion 1.0, a smart and practical archiving utility for saving multiple versions of files.
SmartVersion 1.0 lets users store different versions of their files easily and without fuss, and makes retrieving any previously saved version just as simple. This is especially useful for users who need to save their work in incremental steps. Examples include programmers keeping track of different versions of their software at the various stages, architects working with blueprints, business people working on proposals, graphic designers who make frequent adjustments to their art, writers experimenting with different ideas for manuscripts, and webmasters experimenting with different styles of webpages. All these users, and many others, who constantly update and change their products, and yet have a need to retrieve previous versions of their work, will find a lot of value in SmartVersion, a tool that will help them save time and money.
When users work on files which need to be changed frequently, they either constantly overwrite previous versions so they work on a single file only, or save each version as a separate file. Overwriting seems to be a convenient and resource saving method of working, until they need to retrieve previous versions of their work. When this happens, they have to waste time by either undoing all their work, or even starting from scratch. Alternatively, if users try to save every single version of their work as separate files, this inevitably results in unnecessary, virtually identical extra files which waste valuable harddisk space. In addition, if users do not have a proper method of keeping track of these files, a lot of time will be wasted looking for a particular version of the file they need.
SmartVersion provides is a practical alternative by keeping track of subsequent versions of saved files as updates or patches of the original file. This is done using sophisticated compression algorithms which stores only changes to the original files, allowing users to save and retrieve any version of their work, as well as drastically reduces the resources required to save all of them. Unlike other patching schemes, SmartVersion is also not limited to working with software products, or providing single version upgrades, making it the perfect archiving solution for a greater variety of users. Another area where SmartVersion shines is in situations when these same files have to be sent to outside parties. After sending the original file to end-users, subsequent changes can then be sent as smaller patches/updates instead of resending the whole file again, again saving users time and resources. Users will also be able to control the exact version the recipient gets by sending the specific update/patch to the selected version. By using this update/patch method to keep track of the different versions, users will be able to make more effective use of their time and resources when dealing with multiple-versioned files.
SmartVersion is the perfect archiving solution for users who want a smart, practical and more effective way to save and retrieve different versions of their work, either for personal use or for sharing with others.
PRICE$30 for the full version. This evaluation version is fully functional for a period of 30 days.
