Microsoft recently made a change that allows you to use local PDM mode like client-server mode of PDM, but locally on your machine. This video shows you how to convert to local PDM server mode, but please watch the video in its entirety as once you convert to local PDM mode, you cannot go back.
TopSolid 7 allows you schedule automatic backups to assure your data is not lost if something happens to your local computer. Finally, you can now run multiple instances of TopSolid on the same machine allowing you to work on different aspects of the same project, or different projects at the same time.
