(facetious voice) I finally got around to installing 2.3.1 and I have to wonder what bright idea it was to create a .zip archive of half the internal folders instead of having them created at installation? (/facetious voice) ( I also just noticed, for the first time, that the previous version was done the same.)
The Autosaves, Help and 3 others were in an archive named SDCopy.zip. I spent hours on a project only to have the last couple lost because of a crash. Simply because the Autosaves folder didn’t exist my work wasn’t being periodically saved for just such an issue.
I don’t need to be told about ‘save early, save often’. When you get focused and deep into details the world disappears. Although this is a good lesson to rely less on automatic systems. Still, the archived folders do not make any sense especially since their total size is not even 4mb. And really, there can not be any real substantial reason for it.
I’m not angry or upset about this oddity but do find it unnecessary. I didn’t see it posted in this thread but perhaps it was noted somewhere. For those who weren’t aware of it you can now say you have been informed.
