I can place LO on machines that can barely use MSO 95/97. As long as it
can run Win XP or Ubuntu 10.04, it can run LO.
For me, I always keep a auto save every 5 or 10 minutes. For some
users, the "make a backup copy " of the original file before you edit it
is the only way to go, with the auto saving option enable of course.
The only time I had a problem with the "restore" on reboot of LO was
when I removed the offending file from my system.
The real issue is that if you have a "large" document, then you have to
decide if it is worth any "slowness" with the auto backup and auto
saving enabled. For simple things, maybe not, but for business
documents and documents that take more than a few minutes to type you
should enable them.

I think the default setting avoids taking back-ups as it can be time-consuming and irritating to people on slower machines. One advantage of LibreOffice/OpenOffice is that it tends to work well on machines that are so slow that MS Office would keep falling over.
To switch it on the back-ups option try
Tools - Options - +Load/Save - "Always create a back-up copy"

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Writer recover document

after a crash LO3.4 writer recovers documents, however it seems not to use the
regularly saved corrections.
However, looking up /tmp/.../0.odt I can find the very last corrections stored
and can manually recover from there.
Is this a flaw or a bad configuration at my system?
