Auto Save it is really important to save your work on a regular basis, and it is really important to back up your files. Auto save allows you to automatically save your work, or to automatically backup your work. I choose the option to automatically back up my work and to keep the last five copies. This is saved me a lot of trouble from time to time when Vectorworks crashes or when I have a problem with a corrupted file.
