Actually, for Beta 8, autosave is doing the saving in Windows 98 and ME,
but a problem prevents the recovery wizard from running. The files are
there, in usable condition although with cryptic names, in the autosave

Just imagine. You've been working furiously on a document, or documents, all morning. You have been so busy, you have forgotten the golden Ctrl + s rule to save your work. Suddenly the mains power goes. Your thunderous issue of expletives blister the paint on the walls.
But thankfully Autosave was turned on by default, so when the power comes back on again, and you run DBT, you are told that there are one or more autosaved files. You ask DBT to open them, and hey presto, there is your work, and moreover, it is at the stage it was no more than five minutes before the power went off.
See Global: Autosave Options for the settings, which are fairly self explanatory.
However at this time, it doesn't work with Windows 98 or Windows ME, but the Beta log does say this will be fixed before release.

Back on board finally. Haven't installed this. What's autosave, anyway. Aplauding duxbury in advance.

Come on guys! Where's the round of applause for Duxbury for
including an Autosave?
I'm sure they'll be happy to pull it, if none of you want it! (Smile)
