What It DoesDo-Ver-Zip is a portable, simple version-control utility. It prefixes a date and time stamp to a copy of the selected file or folder. If "zip" is found in the OS path, the file or folder is archived. Do-Ver-Zip is accessible from the context menu (right-click menu) in M-Windows. Do-Ver-Zip has two entries in the context menu: "Make version file" and "Make version folder".
Also available here is MKSTMPDIR, a batch file that creates a folder named by date and time. MKSTMPDIR has an entry in the context menu named "Make TS Folder".
InstallationNOTE: The "short date" setting in Regional Options (M-Windows Control Panel) should be set to "mm/dd/yyyy" or "dd/mm/yyyy", otherwise Do-Ver-Zip may not work or the resulting filename will not contain the right date information. Download the archive, unpack, and copy the file(s) into a directory that is in your PATH environment variable. You can just copy the file(s) into the C:\Windows directory. Other DetailsDo-Ver-Zip comprises a M-Windows BATCH file and a couple of Registry scripts. I used BATCH just to see if it could be done. (o:
If "zip" (Info-Zip, http://www.info-zip.org/) is available in the PATH, the file or folder is also zipped. The Zip binary for M-Windows is available here: ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/win32/
The most recent version of Info-Zip zip is zip300xn.zip.
Each Registry script creates one entry in the context-menu for files and folders. You can install both entries or just one.
There is a Registry script to delete the do-ver-zip entries if you wish.
Tested on M-Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and W7. GPL 3.
