First of all.Â You shouldn't have to.Â Your management should help
you get source control.Â It's not always possible.Â You might be under
funded, you might be overworked, you might just have too much to do.Â
What you do now might work for you.Â I work for a company that is only
now after five years adopting source control.Â That sounds crazy but it
has worked in the main.Â We have lost six or seven files in my five
years there and we got them straight back, albeit without the new
changes, from the live servers.
