Bug Description

I've found that if i am initially connected to a shared network drive, then disconnect while the file is open, the original file can end up being corrupted.

I'm not sure exactly why this happens, but I've lost two files this way now, and have had to spend a good deal of time recreating lost work. If i do not back up the files myself, i risk losing all the work contained in the file (which has happened both times... eventually i will learn).

Not sure if an auto-save function would help, either by creating a temporary backup (not just for successful crash recovery events) that could be accessed in case the original ends up being corrupted, or limiting the amount of work that is lost.

I'll attempt to intentionally recreate the problem and describe the steps a bit in detail during my lunch break.

Not sure. Switched to saving files locally. I'll attempt to recreate the
bug when I get back to my office.

Get back to you by the bed of day on Tuesday.
