We did a recording last week that, when opened today, got the dreaded 'File has invalid data' error.
For a minute we thought we lost 3 hours of creative work (X5 guys = 15 man hours lost!)

Then I remembered to try opening a backup.
Turns out we had 2 backups, and one was from 3 minutes before the final (corrupted) save .. so I opened that BKS file and everything was there.

It was a lifesaver compared to having 4 guys standing there looking at you with an obvious 'not happy' look on their face.

I love that feature.

Do you have to set it up or is it the default? Is it documented? Where are the backups found? Never needed it, but I guess I will one day.

I like that with Pro Tools as well.... Glad your session was saved!

They get saved as default setting.
How many versions and how much disk space (etc) are all controlled in Options under the File tab.
Labeled 'Create backup file when overwriting a SEQ file'.

Check your current active PT or RB folder (likely C:/Realband or C:/PT) for a sub-folder named RBBackup or PTBackup.

Your backup copies live there.

Currently in RB you would use File-Open Special .. then select Open Backup
In the older version of PT I was on in this instance it was File-Open Backup

I'm just glad they are there!

I just checked my RB Backup folder, (BIAB 2018) (Windows 7) it's empty! Preferences set for 5 backups per tune with a total of 1000. Where are my backups hiding?

One thing in 'RB' I know of that may cause this is lack of free disk space.
I believe if you don't have a certain amount disk space free RB won't eat up the space.

Your post mentions BiaB 2018, which I do not think has this feature.
Only RB does.
