Here is a Short Introduction to File Versioning

There are certain instances where you might think having multiple versions of a file is important. After all, nobody is perfect. A file can be lost, damaged, or altered beyond belief, and you’d be none the wiser unless you have multiple versions of it. In this sense, file versioning is crucial to the success of any business that has an eye on the future and a fear of losing progress. Let’s take a look at how file versioning works and why you should take advantage of it.

What is File Versioning?
File versioning in its most basic form is when you store multiple versions of the same file in an inventory that you can view or restore at a later time as needed. Basically, multiple versions of the files can be stored, with the specific number of copies varying with the solution. The administrator can assign values for how many versions of files it can store, as well as how many there are.

It’s likely that you may have already seen file versioning in action. One of the best examples is the most recent version of any Microsoft Office application. If you shut down your device while a document is still open, you can restore these versions of the file if they are needed. Even if it’s a limited aspect of file versioning, it’s a good example of how your business can benefit from it.

Why Would This Benefit You?
Everyone makes mistakes, even the best and the brightest. If you use file versioning software, you’ll be able to have a safety net whenever you’re having trouble with your files. This is especially the case if the most recent version of the file isn’t available for whatever reason. In a way, it’s very similar to snapshot-based data backup and disaster recovery, and it has a preventative component that can be a valuable asset.
