Hello.

This Issue should no longer be considered as CLOSED INVALID. You should look at
the amount of lost data in the "Récupération de documents" section of the
french OOo forum, and I guess this is the same thing on other forums.

The argument that checking by default the "Always create backup copy" would
make too many copies and would need too much disk space is invalid with the
disk capacities we have now. We are no longer at the Stone age of computers. I
have this option checked, and I am also using an Incremental copy extension, so
I have ten or more copies of each of my files, and I am very far from lacking
of disk space.

The "Always create backup copy" option should be checked by default for
beginners who don't know that it exists.Experimented users have always the
possibility to uncheck it.
