Do you mean version control tool? Try Apache Subversion. It's a 3.5mb download.

You wont need to connect to an external server. After installation, your laptop becomes a server. Subversion is a server application that is connected to a database. You may use subclipse (an eclipse plugin and subversion client) to communicate with the server.

Easy to run and to install! [=


However, Tortoise is the client. You still need a server for Tortoise to talk to, even if the server is running on a local machine.

Almost all version control systems are server-based, since their most common use is to co-ordinate work between multiple developers. One exception is RCS, which seems to have formed the basis for the CVS system. CVS implements a server, but RCS does not.

There are a whole boat load of version control systems available. Subversion (svn) and CVS are among the most popular, but there's git, Mercurial, and several commercial product as well, and that's just what come to mind without thinking.

Check the Wikipedia for comparisons. Also as a good place to get familiar with the concepts in general (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Version_control).

You could also try git (http://git-scm.com/) or mercurial (http://mercurial.selenic.com/). No server connection (even to localhost) is required.
