    Rebecca,

    The long answer is no.

    here's a rig... when you go to SAVE AS, SAVE AS.

    then SAVE AS again, but this time right click on the file you want a backup of select COPY then PASTE.

    there's your so-called rigg'n of a backup...better than nuthun. The file name will have "Copy of" at front of filename. I do this if working on a large file and don't want to lose a ton if the world explodes.

    or get CorelDRAW 12, it has autobackupping (word?)among a slew of things illo does not..and may never have such as multiple paged doents (yeah, yeah, get Multipage from hotdoor.com, or use page tiling, export to pdf in CS2). (heehee...had to throw that in... i USE both! and like them both!).

    We've just moved over to using Illustrator from Corel, and was just wondering if Illustrator had a similar capability to Corel! I shall suggest that people save copies of large files to be on the safe side. Thanks.

    Rebecca,

    Before you regret your not having done it: every time you have amended/created artwork you do not want to lose, save and be saved. If you are in doubt, save in a new layer/doent/whatever so you still have what you had.

    I must admit, I haven't looked in to it yet either. If anyone else knows if there is anything that creates or aids back-ups, I would appreciate the tips.
    Thanks.

    I personally like version cue. It has a backup and export feature built in.

    Later,
