Why i would need this? i can save my own files!!!!!
Right! you can save your own files without an addon in the convetional way, you just have to:
(You don't need to read this part, just buy the addon)
> Open the blender browser > Select the directory you want to save the backup file > find the right place > sometimes create a new folder > save this file > go to 'pack all into blend file'> wait a bit to all textures be saved > save the file again to make sure is packed> close the file > open your original file, and continue your work
want to update the backup file?
> open the blender browser > Find the correct file to update > overwrite the existent backup file > go to 'pack all into blend file' (again) > save the file again to make sure is packed (again) > close the file (again) > open your original file, and continue your work (again) > and do all of this everytime you need to update the backup file
You really don't need an addon that will make all this for you everytime you want in seconds and in one button???
