Adding to the automatic backup of Photoshop data (recovery), the ability to perform file backups identical to the automatic backup of Premiere or Aftereffects files.

Large Photoshop projects can be lost if regular manual incrementing save file is not done regularly.
Everyone is free to activate it or not.

If I'm not mistaken, what Andres suggests, is a way to get a given number auto-incremental saves in a folder we can select, rather than the current a one-time single recovery file.

Thank you Pierre-Etienne, the situation is the same for illustrator if I'm not mistaken.
Aftereffects users are better protected against accidental user crashing of their projects.
The Photoshop and Illustrator automatic recovery file concerns only the crash system.

Would an incremental save kbsc that you invoked, such as Painter has, suit—so saving large and/or complex files didn't interfere with performance?

Astute Graphics has a plug-in for Illustrator that will automatically save as often as you specify, or simply remind you to do it yourself, as well as the ability to automatically back up those automatic saves up to x number. But that can affect performance. 

I think since I often work with a lot of layers and performance can easily become affected, I'd prefer the kbsc for an incremental save whenever I thought I had reached a point that I wanted to be sure to keep. However, perhaps that wouldn't solve your problem?

HI Cristen
Thank you for the illustrator Plugin . Yes for Illustrator is a good solution but this solution exists natively on Aftereffects and Premiere (also possible on Adobe Cloud automatically!). Why not on Photoshop and Illustrator especially if a third-party publisher can do it?  It is an essential function for big projects.
