I realise that this is an old topic and I have reviewed the previous posts. However these posts have not resolved my question.
I have the following questions:
In previous posts it has been pointed out that the AUTOSAVE files should be stored in the folder specified in the Preferences - Files Tab. Previous posts have not said which of the files listed does this. I ask because there is no AUTOSAVE listed in this list.
Given the above comment I wondered why I had an AUTOSAVE file in the same folder to which I have been saving my files and in which the back up files are also showing. Has something changed since the previous threads.
I have AUTOSAVE set for 5 minutes. But only have 1 AUTOSAVE File. I have searched the entire computer and only have this 1 random AUTOSAVE file.
- I pulled up the folder and noted the time of my last save and backup. I made an edit and left the file unattended for 10 minutes. No new or additional back ups were made. I am confused. Surely it should have made a save at 5 minutes.
I back up like it going out of fashion. I also keep a Drop Box copy of my drawings.
The reason for my post is that the computer shut down and I lost a small amount of work. It set me to look for the AUTOSAVE files and I was surprised that they weren’t there.
