Save your million dollar idea with notepad++ backups

I'm guilty of overusing notepad for note-taking, notepad++ more specifically (when I'm on Windows). I'm not proud of it, but having some important notes.txt on my desktop it's not a rare occasion.

Do you know those stories on incredible ideas that started on the back of a napkin? An unsaved new 1 tab on notepad++ is my back of a napkin.

But what if notepad++ crashes or the machine runs out of power? Backups to the rescue!

That way you can always reach C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\backup\ for getting the million dollar idea back.
