How to use GIT version control with your backup account

Git is a distributed version control system and helps to address a number of important and topical problems, such as:

  • having multiple versions of one file or a group of files edited by a group of people with an ability to save all versions - from early ones to latter ones
  • avoiding of important files overwriting
  • tracking revision history (each change is prompted to be documented)

You can use Git to maintain any set of files (for example, a website's files and assets, a software development project, or simple text files). For more information, read Git's documentation.

With implementing git version control system, all of your changes will be under control. Originally, it was created to manage the Linux kernel source code, and nowadays, it is in active use by many developers globally.
