I make a separate folder to store all those backups, so I can't overwrite it by accidentally choosing them with the CK.

Experimental builds I'm working on if I'm not happy with the way its going I just pull the "major" version out the archive and try again...the CK does keep backups everytime you save, there are 10 of them iirc, but its hard to keep track of which one was the "best" version and once iti reaches its limit it overwrites the first one again... but if you've forgotten to keep it safe you can always trawl through the backups. Its tedious which I why I get into the habit of putting anything I'm pleased with in my own backup archive.
