Backing up at regular intervals
Version: 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, & Scientific Notebook
With the quick-load backup feature, you can back up your open, named document regularly at intervals you specify. The initial default is 20 minutes.
The operation saves a quick-load copy of each open document using the same name as the document and a file extension of .aut. The feature works only with named files. Your document remains open so you can continue to work on it.
When the quick-load backup feature is in use and you save and close a document normally, the program discards the .aut file. The next time you open your document, the program will try to open the most recent version of the document. If that version is an .aut file, the program asks whether you want to open it instead of the older .tex version. If you choose not to open the .aut file, the program discards it.
Note that each time you save a file manually, the program sets the backup counter to zero. If you always save manually before the end of the time interval you specify, the program never automatically saves your document and never creates an .aut file.
