TimeTraveler?/font> is a simple and inexpensive way for you to travel back in time and find previous versions of your documents, files and folders. Simply MOVE the time cursor on the timeline to a time mark to look at your files at the selected time. When you change the time on the timeline, TimeTraveler?/font> changes the Explorer address to point to your selection at that point-in-time. TimeTraveler?/font> can rescue you from accidents and mysterious data loss by retrieving your files from the past. TimeTraveler?is also a valuable change Review tool. Create a point-in-time before making important changes to your files or schedule a task that will periodically create a point-in-time while you work. At any moment, you can launch the comparison program from Windows Explorer and review you changes against a prior point-in-time.
Windows Explorer is the Windows interface to your files and data. TimeTraveler?/b> adds a timeline to Windows Explorer. With the timeline you can quickly access previous versions of your files just like any current version of your file. To create versions, you can use the TimeTraveler?/b> configuration interface right from Windows Explorer. And because TimeTraveler?/b> is a natural extension of the Windows Explorer design, you can quickly manage and access your previous versions (shadow copies) from that one simple interface.
TimeTraveler?/b> is a Windows Explorer Toolbar, you can switch it on or off by selecting View → Explorer Bar → TimeTraveler from the Explorer Menu Bar (see the picture below). You can also use Control-T as a toggle to switch it on and off. Once you turn it on, you can visit any past Shadow Copy of your files and read, but not write, from it.
