This is already covered in the manual https://www.scirra.com/manual/61/preferences, specifically:

Enable autosave
If enabled, Construct 2 will automatically save the project to a .capx.autosave file in the same folder on a regular interval (as determined by Autosave frequency). In the event of a crash, power failure, or even just accidentally closing and not saving, the project can be recovered from the last autosave by renaming the file with the .capx.autosave extension to just .capx and opening it again.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Random comment - was never happier than to have these autosaves this morning.
Stupid Windows updates.

OMFG, yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Worked like a charm, son!
My external hard drive failed, so I could not read the latest capx file.
For some reason though, the computer was able to read the autosave file =)
From now on though, will start doing regular back ups. These files are so small that we all should do it daily.
