After you use PDF Annotator to edit or annotate a document, it is usually a good practice to save the document under a new name in order to preserve the original document. Otherwise, you might find yourself, for example, accidentally deleting pages from the original, without the ability to restore them.
To keep this from happening, PDF Annotator will ask you for confirmation before you overwrite an original document. This confirmation message can be turned off by choosing Extras Settings Backup Confirm before overwriting original document.
In addition, PDF Annotator lets you create automatic backups before you overwrite an original document.
Choose Extras Settings Backup Create .ORG backup to allow PDF Annotator to automatically create a backup copy with the original file name and an .org extension the first time that you attempt to overwrite an original document. This backup copy is created only once.
Choose Extras Settings Backup Create .BAK backup to allow PDF Annotator to automatically save the previous version with the same file name and a .bak extension any time that you overwrite a document. This backup copy is created each time that you overwrite the file, and thus always preserves the file as it was last saved.
These backup copies are always created in the same directory as the document that you are saving. To restore a backup copy, use Windows Explorer to remove the .org or .bak extension.
For a last resort, PDF Annotator regularly backs up AutoRecover data to restore your latest work in case of a sudden hardware or software failure.
Choose Extras Settings Backup Save AutoRecover information to allow PDF Annotator to automatically back up AutoRecover data, and set the backup interval in minutes.
