I keep my modest Python scripts in a Dropbox directory and run a weekly 
Python script to zip up the Dropbox directory for safekeeping on the 
home file server and Microsoft OneDrive. If I really need a recent copy 
of a script, Time Machine on the Mac should have a copy from the Drop 
Box folder.

The only time I use version control is when I have a big project with 
many moving parts and/or I'm publishing software for other people to use.
