  • Can you describe precisely what paths are involved? There are separate periodic backups (to locations set in preferences) as well as auto-backups (.capx.backup1 etc), which are also different to the autosaves (.capx.autosave). Also can you reproduce with a shorter autosave time? Bugs which only manifest over 5 hours are extremely difficult to fix, since bugs often require 5-10 tests to get things working.
