As many others do, I usually keep pressing the save button or Ctrl + S while editing a document, just in case the application suddenly crashes down and then I lose the changes I made in the document. However, sometimes I found it annoying when I save the document too fast and can’t undo something silly because the “Undo” menu has become gray after I save the document, or at most the “undo” can only allow me to undo a limited number of actions, but not enough for getting back to the point that I want. I have been experiencing this issue for years.
Now, I’m using SugarSync to backup my important documents. While I’m editing the documents, SugarSync will automatically sync them to the cloud and keep different versions of the files. For example, every time I press Ctrl + S, SugarSync keeps a new version of the file. If I have done something silly on the document and saved the file, I can go to my SugarSync account and download an earlier version of that file and replace the “newer” file. That is another form of undoing.
I have been using SugarSync to sync files around my Mac, PC and iPhone, and I find it pretty useful. I highly recommended it. I used to stick to , SugarSync‘s competitor, but I couldn’t access to my Dropbox account when I travelled to China, which was very very frustrating! After that incidence, I switched to SugarSync.
