Luckily I do save periodically but I was doing some very mathematical building work. ROBLOX decided to crash but before it did, my work was autosaved meaning I would be able to open it again. Unless, for whatever reason I open the last version I saved, in which case it will save that over my autosave file… oops?</p> <p>tl;dr, ROBLOX will overwrite a backup if you open the copy you saved, even if it’s older.
