Confirmed the bug as a Regression based on your valuable information

Thank you for this link! In fact the feature did work as expected in
So, in fact, this is a regression from the 4.0 branch

It's just that the backup copy is not saved in the same folder as the
original document!!!

I think this is a very BAD default option for 2 reasons: 1) It makes sense
that the backup is on the same working folder as the original file (in case
you want to quickly revert to a previous version); 2) The Backup folder is
contained in the User Profile, which MANY users advise to DELETE when any
error occurs (which I also think is a BAD advice...)
