Very recently, blender crashed and deleted some of my work. I looked into the autosave directory after I tried to reopen my file. The reopened older version (without my recent changes) was the only version available in the autosave directory. It disappointed me that my changes were gone in the very recently autosaved file. In the user preferences panel I saw some autosave settings, none of which seemed to change how many previous versions of autosave files there were.
My question is this:
Is there a setting in the user preferences that will alter the amount of autosave versions saved as seperate files? Is there an addon that will work to the same effect?
