In this video tutorial in the series Ableton Live Quick Tips, I get into the details of the backup feature that was introduced in Live 10. This function is very useful for avoiding losing your work. Whether you have accidentally overwritten the Live Set after you’d made a mistake. Because once you save a Live Set the Undo history gets deleted. Or if Live crashes, a power outage happens or whatever, your work will be safe.
There are a few things you need to know though to ensure the backups will happen correctly. This, where the backups are saved, as well as how many, I explain and show in the video below.

“once you save a Live Set the Undo history gets deleted”
Fortunately, this is no longer the case as of Live 10.0.
Thanks for the reminder. You’re right. I’d totally forgotten.
