Global: DBT Autosave Recovery Wizard

Should your system fail for any reason while using DBT, the next time you run this program you will normally see the Recovery Wizard. This wizard gives you the option to recover any document(s) you had open, but had not saved during your last DBT session.

Please note that if you open a document but do not make any changes, it will not be listed.

The DBT Autosave recovery Wizard dialog displays a list of the files which have been autosaved. You have a choice of three buttons explained below. Note that focus will normally be on the "Open" button.
