I fricken double tap ctrl+alt+s yo
that way if I make changes, it’s only to the second ctrl+alt+s which I can then just regular save.
Then, very so often, like, every 10-20 ctrl+alt+s saves, get this, ready? I do a ctrl+shift+s save, and add a save description addendum to the title telling me what it is I have changed or been working on.
This save protocol, has saved me thousands upon thousands of times.
The .baks have saved me in between my consistent manual saves where there has been a crash or an accident, or something,
I would never rely on .baks so much as to critique their implementation or even consider them or think about them. They are an extra extra safety net to catch an extremely unlikely low percentage chance that my manual backups won’t be sufficient in recovering whatever it is I need, which is %99 foolproof.
