Source Control is a basic requirement of any development shop, even one-person teams. The first time a big refactoring operation seriously breaks your project and you can roll-back with just one click, you’ll be sold.

There are a bunch of solutions out there for Visual Studio, but integration with the IDE is almost always going to cost you some money. I use VisualSVN, which costs a few dollars and requires TortoiseSVN to be installed on your local machine.

If you’re after a free solution, Axosoft have just released v1.0 of their Visual Studio Subversion add-in called RocketSVN. It’s free for a limited time, so go grab a copy now.

If you combine RocketSVN with the free VisualSVN Server (a Windows management interface over a traditional Subversion server installation), you’ve got a no-cost source control package with full Visual Studio integration. If you’ve been sitting on the fence on this one, now’s the time to act.

They've stopped development on RocketSVN now. But you could use uberSVN and tortoiseSVN instead.
