Automatic File Save

I propose an automatic Save file location (just like autocad)  that allows the user to set the number of minutes between automatic saves.  A backup file is saved to a temp folder automatically (every 10 minutes for example)  in case of any system crash or failure.

This will reduce the need for compulsive drawing saves after every command and edit.
Productivity increases and anxiety decreases. Everyone wins. Hurray!
This would help a lot! One issue my users 'comment' about on a regular basis, is that they've just done a lot of work as they were on a roll, haven't saved the document and ArcMap crashes on them.

My first question is "when did you last save your work?", but having an auto save function would be nice.

This feature is really missed in ArcGIS Desktop and in ArcGIS Pro!!!
