We're a professional association of archivists, so for me, backup is not just for emergency webpage recovery, but long term preservation of web page content and visual appearance - most or all versions of each page. With older systems, I just saved the HTML files, graphics, etc. and added dates to the file names.
Are there any workarounds that would enable me to preserve this data (locally - not just on WA), without eating up more time than I have to devote to web page maintenance? WA was supposed to make my tasks easier, not more complicated. (I didn't realize it would take away my preservation capabilities). Please advise. Thanks!
