Autosave not working

I'm using Magix Music Maker Version, the EDM edition from the "bundle" a month ago and almost immediately ran into the "crash right before saving hours of work" problem, only to discover the Autosave feature had NOT been saving my work every 10 minutes like the default settings indicate it should. There are NO files in any directory with a .BAK extension, no files other than the Saves I'd made manually.

Thinking it might be Windows 10 blocking saving into the default directories for some security reason, I redefined all the Folders in the Magix settings to use a different hard drive, but with the same results. No Autosaves.

Just to be clear, there are no error messages, no Windows popups telling me this or that is blocked, or the disk is full or anything like that, there are just no Autosave files being created.
I have the Autosave interval set to 10 minutes as in the default. I tried shortening it to 5 minutes, but same result.

And true, I can still manually Save, as long as I remember to do it while in the middle of making music, but it would be nice if the feature worked... just in case.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might be able to get Autosave working..?

Music Makers back up files would end with .mm_

I can't get AutoSave to work for Music Maker 2020 Premium and I've tried it on 2 different laptops. Samplitude Music Studio 2019's AutoSave works perfectly. A new _BAK.VIP file shows up every minute. I should have looked into Magix Acid Music Studio 11 or Acid Pro 10 instead of upgrading to MM Premium 2020.

In Music Makers manual it says "Tip: The Media Pool features a smaller version of the MIDI Editor. Select the MIDI object you would like to edit and then click the Settings Object Inspector button. This MIDI Editor may be operated identically to the "larger" version that features its own window; however, the menu and various play and recording settings will not be available." I don't think the "Settings Object Inspector button." even exists. I don't see any smaller version of the Midi Editor.
