True, for the files that I need to version control, I am the only user. No data sharing. I'll have a look at SnapshotCM.

So Mats, do I read correctly that you are looking for a single-user solution
with no data sharing between different users? If so, in addition to the
you mentioned there is SnapshotCM, which is available with a free single-
user license, and you can also configure various CVS clients to work on
a stand-alone system with no server (I'm using Tortoise here, because it
can interface both with server-based CVS repositories and ones I create
on my own local HD)

However, if you have more than one user and exchange working files with
each other, IMO you're going to be in for a world of hurt trying to synch
up multiple single-user versioning seats without a common repository, either
on a server or in someone's shared HD space.
