I have a question about Local History.
Each time I upgrade to a new EAP, I make a copy of my projects directory, e.g. c:\data\projects7243 to c:\data\projects7248. I do this in case I need to fallback to an older EAP.
I thought the Local History was stored in .IntelliJ70/system directory, which I leave alone upon upgrade.
So, why is it that my Local History is wiped out each time? Is the local history tied to the project path? I thought it was based on each filename's path, which doesn't change,
because I keep all source in a directory external to the c:\data\projects7248 directory e.g. c:\workspace\src\com\abc\....
The only thing in the C:\data\projects\7248 directory are the .ipr, .iml, and .iws files.
Please advise. Thanks,
