    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

(i revised it make it even more obvious) i like to have it on. It has saved my ass a number of times. I have a butt load of ram and a very good processor and video card and it rarely crashes. I only mentioned crashes because it does happen but not often enough to concern me. Im just annoyed that im in the middle of doing something and it locks up and starts to save. The fact that i save to a server further slows down the save process. If your computer isnt powerful enough to handle an autosave then by all means turn it off. But mine can handle it just fine. Its just an annoyance to me.

    Obviously the answer is........ it is not possible.

    thread closed
    and you have recieved that answer first both times you have asked.

    The admin or a moderator will determine when/if to close a thread.
    Why did you not remove your threat, since you had time to alter your original question?

    Proves my point, autosave is not saving behinds as often as many think. Why do you think most programs do not have an autosave?

    I have seen crashes corrupt the autosaves, so whether you use it or not SAVE is the only sure way to SAVE your work.

    P.S. the first proclaimation from the OP was MAKE IT STOP! The correct answer to that is TURN IT OFF!

    Embarrassed AutoSave OFF Task Scheduler ON

    Set up a message/task in Windows Task Scheduler to run at your desired time...
    I set one up to start at 7:00 and alert me every 15 minutes:
    e.g. short message: Time to save DWG
    You can set it reset to your particular situation.
    Also set Autosave in AutoCAD every 30 minutes just for fun...
    If your job is set to work all day in the CAD environment it's not bad
    Not a fix all but it's something. Somewhat annoying but so is when someone expels noxious gas
