    Has anyone got a special method of keeping track of versions of the same project. I seem to start out ok but as the project grows it just becomes a folder full of files some of which become redundant. I then am not confident to delete them. I would be pleased if someone could give me some guidance.

    One way would be to add a "SUB" or a "region" and keep there references to all the external files used in the current build...

    When I close a project, I always add a comment in the globals with an incremented number and save the project with that number in the file name.

    When I open a project, I load the highest version number and immediately do a save as with the number not in the filename (this becomes my "working" copy of the project)

    This allows me to roll back to a previous version, and does not work as well when using modules. It also does not work well if multiple people are working on the project and adding code.
