How to disable it for all apps
Authored by: tempel on Jul 30, '12 01:42:03PM

No idea. I just tried it out when I saw someone else using the "-g" option for something else and figured it could be used for other global prefs as well.

It's probably Apple's great "we have to protect even the power users" new attitude in Lion and Mtn Lion...

How to disable it for all apps
Authored by: Ronald Lanham on Jul 30, '12 06:21:22PM

I just got the error message myself for the first time.

It seems innocuous though since all that I had to do was dismiss it and I could go on changing the unsaved TextEdit document as much as I wanted and then save it.

So for the considerable speed improvement I've seen in the system itself it's a no brainer to keep Autosave deactivated.

Now opening applications and even folders in the Dock that had previously taken several seconds to open... now open quickly after globally disabling Autosave.

I imagine this is due to the system not having to waste resources keeping track of everything.
