With most SCM tools like MS Visual Source Safe you have to safe your daily work by zipping all the files to a network drive, CD or other media. Checking in the files is no solution. That would change the current project configuration for all other software developpers.

See the chapter on branching and merging in the Subversion book:
<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch04.html>.

Basically you copy the trunk of the source tree to another area of the
repository, make your changes there (regularly committing), and when
you're done you apply your changes back to the trunk.
