Automatic Saves and Back Ups
Softwares like Ableton, particularly Ableton, provide an automatic save feature, multiple back ups, as well as allow you to restore your work if your software crashes. Additionally, you can "Collect All and Save" and the program collects all the project files and organizes them within the project folder where you will never lose them as long as you have the folder and no longer have the issue of missing files. I believe that this system should be adopted by Adobe as this would save countless hours and lost progress for its users. Thank you.
Well, actually, Illustrator has most of this.
Automatic Save feature is available for cloud documents, and local documents are backed up every once in a while. You ca set settings for these in 'Preferences > File Handling' section.
Also cloud documents support versioning — try Window > Version History
'Collect All and Save' is known as File > Package, and is older than Ableton, if I remember correctly :)
Please respond back after you try these and tell more how do they work for you (if they do at all)
