I have a client who has a habit if closing (no save) documents after several hours of work. It always happens up against a filing deadline.
I have auto save set fire every 5 minutes in both programs. But the auto save docs are deleted on a proper exit or save.

I am thinking of a batch file that runs every five minutes that copy the auto recover folder.

Do any of you have a note elegant solution?
