Right Ho!

It's time to bring a bit of method to my coding madness.

I have various html, asp, aspx, css and php files of varying age in various forms of completion sitting around in different drives and folders and with varying name conventions etc etc ad nauseam.

What kind of versioning software/tools are you using that you would recommend to someone who has never done it before?

Thanks in advance!

I've used CVS (open source too):-

[nongnu.org...]

Windows (WinCVS) and *nix versions available.

See also:-

[dmoz.org...]

someone who has never done it before?

Any versioning system will require a little bit of time to adapt to. I would pick one based on price/feature set and learn it.

Also:-

[dmoz.org...]

(hint: dmoz is King for these types of searches)

Also take a look at subversion:

[subversion.tigris.org...]

If you like CVS, then definitely try subversion as posted above. Subversion is enhanced version of CVS.

I've found CVS with Tortoise adequate. But my true love is SourceSafe (now bought out by Microsoft) - but it isn't free

Just went through finding version control software myself. I ended up picking MS SourceSafe. It is now intergrated into their Visual Studio, but the last stand alone version 6d can be had for $50 on eBay.
