Having read the posts it seems I am not alone at losing working due to the auto[obliterator]save feature.
Am I right in thinking that autosave overwrites the original file?
In my case, I was working on model on my work mac throughout the week, saving the file to google drive filestream.
At the weekend, I then picked up the file on my home macbook and invested a good 15hrs of work.
This morning, I booted up my work mac, which of course loaded up the applications from Friday including Sketchup with the model from Friday night. Autosave kicked in and overwrote the entire weekend’s work.
It would be really helpful if the autosave were be timestamped and save to a folder on the local pc so that if the original file gets overwritten and the work can be recovered. Even better would be if sketchup check the timestamp on the file against the last change before overwritting.
I could have sworn that earlier version would save to a new file each time to avoid this type of scenario.
