Description florianbecker1972 2015-02-25 13:20:51 UTC
First it seems that there are millions of people who had lost their libre/MS/openoffice work due some own mistakes or also the current autobackup option. 

so because writing is work, it is really bad if work is lost. so why not make a GOOD autosave backup option?

FIRST IT SAVES ALSO IF THE USER HAS NOT SAVED IT BUT ALSO THE CURRENT OPEN DOCUMENT....


Enable NewAutobackup |_|
Folder:    (here you can choose the backup folder)

How many minutes should be an autobackup ?  |__|
for many days Backups should be created ? |__| 
how many days to keep |__|


Now the NewAutobackup functions just saves every x minutes the open document to the specific folder. Of course first it looks if there is an changement, if the version is different THAN he writes the file. that goes on a whole day. that happens on so much days as the user choosed. if all days are fisnished, it starts with the folder of the first day. if "how many days to keep" are bigger than 1 than it backups the file under a different name. it does not overwrite it. this procedure it will go on until "how many days to keep " are reached and than it starts to overwrite it. on this way you can save easily months of work !

Seems somewhat plausible.
