I just realized yesterday when I needed a backup copy that my auto-save seem to be broken. The folder is set up and file is supposed to be saved each 15 minutes, but the folder is empty.

Is it a known issue with Finale 25 and 26?

I think Auto-save just doesn’t kick in when it is time to...

If it's on, the files should be saving somewhere. Trick is to find out where. So, 25 or 26? Mac or Windows?

Please show the path to the empty folder.

Thanks Mike, both Finale 25 and 26 on an iMac with High Sierra 10.13.5.

I have set the path in the preferences to a folder on the desktop and niet! Normally they are saved to a default folder in User-> Documents -> Finale files -> Backups, but nothing there so I changed it to a folder on the desktop to follow my experimentation.

It does write .bak but it is not what I need. I need auto-save to prevent any loss of work if I forget to save the document. It has always worked in the past.

Hello, have you made any progress figuring out how to get Autosave to start working again? I have just realized that mine is not working, and have lost several files. Yes, it was my fault I lost them, but Autosave would have saved the day. 

Appreciate any info/advice. 

Thanks.

Hmmmm... I don't know. It used to be that you had to save Preferences twice but that doesn't appear to be the case anymore. Clicking OK and saving the file works for me in 26.
