I have got my auto save set to 50 versions at 5 min intervals and I find when the auto save number reaches 50 the earlier ones are not overwritten. The program still comes up with 'saving project' every 5 mins but I can't find where it is saving them (if at all). I have only just noticed this issue (after an untimely crash). A couple of months a go I did a reinstall of Win 7 and 5.5 production premimum, I did not have this problem when I only had Premiere 5.5 installed. Any thoughts..
Look at the Date Modified. That will give you the most current auto save.
Thanks, you were right, the time and date shown on my windows page was the date created not the date modified so it looked like it wasn't saving as the created date did not change.
