hello, can tell me if you can configure Visual Studio 2010 to automatically back up and how is it? I use Visual Studio 2010 configured with Team Foundation Server. Thank you.

All the files, created by VS2010 are saved into one of the folders on your computer. So all you need to do is back-up the files on your computer, which you should do anyway...

i use several techniques:
(a) when working on a project, i frequently right click its folder, zip it, modify the .zip name, e.g.: myProject.zip ==> myProject-2011-09-19-19-22.zip and then e-mail the .zip to myself; for e-mail, i use "leave mail on server" for at least 15 daya and
i receive my POP e-mail on more than one computer; if i'm working for a client and that client has given me an e-mail address, i'll cc that e-mail address too;
(b) i'll back up all of my .zip vs2010 projects to USB keys and burn DVDs;
(c) i've a 2TB external USB Seagate FreeAgent drive and periodically use
http://www.nero.com/enu/backitup-and-burn-overview.html to back up my entire system.
(d) i've not found a source code control system that pleases me but if my customer has one, i'll back up the code that i write for them frequently.
imho, one can NEVER have TOO MUCH BACKUP ...
TIMTOWTDI =. there is more than one way to do it
