I think I can guess why it's done this way. Say you were keeping 99 backups and each time you saved they ALL had to be renamed to keep consistency... Could take a while...
However, I agree, there needs to be a logical predictabilty with the numbering. I just did some more saves with my test file, and the backups started to update in the middle of the stack so to speak.
I have 10 backups set up - in my initial testing I just did a bunch of saves fairly quickly over a period of 2 minutes. There were 4 that all had the same minute - numbers 7, 8, 9 an 10. Numbers 1 through 6 were later minutes.
So, did a save, #1 got the latest version and #7 was replaced by the old #1, save again and #8 got replaced by the newer #1 etc. up to #10, then #2 got the change, followed by #3 and #4.
Seems to be a circular buffer based on timestamp, but one could get a bit lost.
Perhaps the open backup option should either automatically put the dialogue into "Details" view ot sort on date - most recent at the top. Or maybe both..?
