operating in paranoid mode is generally a good thing when so much work
hangs in the air

to allay your fears somewhat, and you may know this well, a set of up to
ten incrementing timed auto save backups may be written to a 
separate folder which by default is an SE subfolder

these are independent of and in addition to the backups that are made in
the local directory each time you push the save button and i have found
them to very useful on occasion

even a trashed DDB (which, knock on wood, we have not yet had) can be
reasonably well reconstructed using these

i have found that even when the program is crashed, depending on the
crash mode, it generally will faithfully keep making these timed backups

just wait out the 10 minutes or however long you have it set for BEFORE
terminating the TASK

they have saved us a few times and are a thoughtful feature of protel

the settings are in the ARROW menu preferences, autosave button
