Revisionist & DeepTools

Revisionist – opens up the full power of the macOS versioning system

Revisionist makes deep copies of documents with all their versions, and carries versions across iCloud Drive and other barriers. It also identifies and lists files with multiple versions, lists versions with details for individual files, previews them using Quick Look, and removes/deletes selected versions from the macOS database. New version tests its checks for updates and downloads them for you, and has a minor improvement.
Revisionist 1.4 (El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave)

DeepTools – three quick and simple tools to preserve versions associated with your documents when copying or moving them

DeepCopy preserves versions when copying/moving within a local volume, or between volumes. DeepArchive and DeepUnarchive ensure complete mobility, keeping versions intact for other Macs on iCloud, when copying to memory sticks, networked storage (NAS), even sending documents by email, and with other operating systems including Linux/Unix and Windows. Now fully compatible with Dark Mode and notarized.
