We currently use Subversion for version control of our FileMaker development, but we're starting to explore moving to Git instead. We've heard some rumors of people experiencing file corruption when using Git for FileMaker files, but I haven't been able to track down any real sources.

Is anyone using Git for version control of FileMaker Pro files? Other than needing to close the files completely before committing, have you had any issues?

FM does not really lend it itself for that kind of version control since it is all one binary file.  There is no forking and merging of scripts or layouts within a file and so on.

 

We solve it by hosting the dev files on a dev server and running backups at 10 minute intervals.
