Wonder if it's like the DIA sisters; CMD, FILE & ATT (if that was their names;
homely bunch anyway)? Gets toggled off by some function then you crash and it

want to wean yourself of the autosave function. That system probably won't have
I normally don't use autosave with any app, but tried running it in MDT (tried
a few times with different versions up thru MDT6) and turned it back off because
I felt very strongly that it was Causing Random Crashes.
can cause a lot of unexpected crashes.
(just an old fashioned suggestion)
I would switch to the better software if my customers would. I have already purchased new Inventor, & MDT, but can't save backward. Everything should be universal, but you know how that is.
Thanks again, anyway
I have had this problem for years, since AutoCAD 2004 (currently on 2011 MEP). I go in to the options, turn it on and set it for 10 minutes.
A couple months later, when AutoCAD crashes, I go to my autosave folder, and the latest sv$ file is a month old. Then I go to the options, and the automatic save function is unchecked again. WFT?!
Don't be hatin' on Tournaments. LOL, sorry. That was supposed to be a ...
It's a plausable explanation, but it seems to stop doing that for a long time (months). It happened to me yesterday, and the latest save was from November.
