Much needed feature, to save us from unexpected crashes, and other circumstances that may result in loosing progress on our works . I guess many people here would probably agree.

Works greate so far. Thank You!

Another one small request though. Could you add one "Autosave" or similar suffix to autosaved files, so its separate from manually saved files and has its own file stack. To visualize that:

Project_01
Project_02
Project_03
Project_04
Project_06
Project_AUTOSAVE_01
Project_AUTOSAVE_02
Project_AUTOSAVE_03

Another thing, is it possible for you do make currently opened scene top remain as last manually saved file. So when autosave kicks in file name won't change the name from e.g. Project_05 to Project_AUTOSAVE_01, but will remain as Project_05, so whenever I'll use "save" command I"ll be overwriting my last saved file rather then autosave file. Hope it makes sense.

I can see added suffix, but scene name still chaneges to autosave file. Is it doable to make it ramain the same name unless you change it by using "Save Scene as" or "Save Scene Incremental"? Probably the easiest way would be to autosave with current scene name, and then after save is done automatically rename it to  Name_Autosave_#.

If its not doable, it would be better to go back to previous naming method without "AUTOSAVE", because it just complicates things.

This is not by any means essentials,  it just would make the autosave feature to work in more clean and organised way.
