ForeverSave

2.1.6
07 December 2016

Universal auto-save and backup versioning.

Overview

ForeverSave auto-saves all documents you're working on while simultaneously doing backup versioning in the background. Lost data can be quickly restored at any time. Define your preferred time interval and ForeverSave 2 automatically saves and backs up all documents you're currently working on. Add as many applications to ForeverSave's library as you want and you'll no longer need to manually save any of your documents.

Each time documents are saved - either manually by yourself or automatically by ForeverSave 2 - a version of the document is created which allows you to browse through a complete version history of the documents you have been working on. Just pick the version you desire and ForeverSave 2 shows you a Quick Look preview of the file. Besides restoring your documents to a destination of your choice or by drag-and-drop, ForeverSave 2 lets you automatically replace a faulty original document by an earlier working version from the backups.

No matter what kind of documents you're a dealing with, a wide range of settings allow ForeverSave 2 to perfectly adapt to your personal workflow. Save disk space by excluding documents with large file sizes, limit the number of maximum versions of a document or restrict backup creation to certain file extensions, such as .txt or .psd. Every individual case can be set up in ForeverSave 2.

Excellent piece of software. It can use some improvement (specifically the UI for setting application preferences as well as the way it handles autosave for programs I switch back and forth between) but other than that it works fairly well. I rate Features a 4 because of the lack of fine grained control in setting autosave times. I have to give Ease of Use a 2 because of the "wizard" style UI for changing per-application settings. PLEASE put all the per-application settings in an inspector panel or in a single sheet - I don't want to have to click through five settings screens to get to the one I want and then have to do that for every application if I want to change something for each. Having a master preferences set and then having each application's settings able to either use the defaults or manually override the global settings would help too.

Hey, what happened to Toolforce? I go to their webpage and get a "502 Bad Gateway" error. Are they out of business? Up until recently ForeverSave worked great.

Today my ForeverSave app has disappeared. A message said my database was corrupt. After trying a bunch of stuff I even tried to rebuy it but it's not available for sale anyplace anymore and even the free trial doesn't download, I LOVED that app it's saved my butt many times.

I used to rely on this program, but as of late it seems hit or miss... Lately it just seems to have become unreliable. I noticed recently that months have passed (and countless modifications made) since it had made a backup of anything... I decided to delete my entire history and set it up from scratch. It worked at first but after a couple of days I went back in and found it seemingly had stopped working... I can no longer rely upon this and am now looking for an alternative.

Exact same thing happened to me. The app seldom gets updates, and only works intermittently..

Maybe this is a great utility. But it doesn't seem to work with Dreamweaver (v. 5), which happens to be my workhorse app., so I can't use it. Sad but true.

I've used this since 2009 - its saved me several times. It was slightly fiddly to set up, and in some applications making sure its working properly took a bit of trial and error, but once going its a lifesaver. One time I accidentally deleted a conference presentation 15 minutes before I was due to give it. I restored it from ForeverSave, without losing any work.

Really disappointed by this software for not using a binary diff for the file differences. Crazy to store the full size of files when you don't have to.

Unfortunately, autosave does not work on my Mac Mini with Mavericks installed. I have to manually hit Cmd-S every time I want to save a document. Even then, it only works with some applications and not all.

THANK YOU for updating this to work with Mavericks! I hadn't been able to use this app for the 6 months because of incompatibilities. This product has saved my bacon many times when I needed to get back to a previous version that I had accidentally saved over. Great app, and worth every penny the dev charges for it.

I recently had an issue with ForeverSave's file saving and the developer promptly wrote me back. The issue turned out to be with the app that I was saving from (which that developer fixed) and not ForeverSave. Indispensable for mission critical work and past reference. I much prefer this means of document backup to Apple's. P.S. The developer mentioned that an update is on the way! I've not encountered what those with negative posts have mentioned. Either I'm lucky, or the developer has rekindled their passion for this app. I hope so as I use this everyday.
