[Kevin Patrick] "Why? Why go to the trouble of having a backup feature, but only one backup? As you say, what if you wind up with a backup of your corrupted project?"

Why, would be the $64K question for Apple. How can this possibly be seen as the "next generation" of backup?
It's like an addiction to new and simplified that defies logic as part of it's march towards newer and simpler.

Incremental save files have obvious and enormous value in dire times - it's proven - it works.

Replacing it with a 15 minute destructive autosave that ISN'T available to the user (everything must be hidden to be simple) can't possibly be seen as an improvement if you understand what a backup is for.

We had two projects fail and many $Ks of hours that had to be redone because there was no incremental backup.
It won't happen again because we duplicate regularly and we're super aware of corruption and it's potential.

If you've written a perfect program that removes this need then you're truly visionary. But seeing as though the new FCP has corruption issues like no version in a decade, a simple autosave function looks pretty smart.
