This would be awesome to combat the stability of TS. Thanks for developing this.

New update...

Moved the Save RsScn panel out of the scene to System.
So now it does not save with the scene.

Also developed a Save RsScn Incrementally

Hummm, I just downloaded it and tried it and worked without error.
You need to create a scene first and then use the File Dialog to locate it and select it.
Capture.PNG
If you are just selecting the On/Off button with the included file path:
C:\trueSpace761\tS\Rs Main Libraries\My Scene\My Backup.RsScn
You do not have that scene.
The included file path is a library and scene that is included in the Unofficial Update version 4

OK, I understand now how it works. It works fine except I don't really understand how you get a thumbnail update, as shown in "My Backup Scene". :)
