Backups showing a blank page

Issue #

We had about 100 students who needed to work over 2 days for controlled coursework assessments, they saved their work and had autosave and autobackups enabled, all were ok except one student who returned to their work the next day to blank documents in both the autosaved version and the backed up version. The issue was resolved by renaming the extension of the backup documents from EXAMTEXTBACKUP to EXAMTEXT and then opening the work in Exam Writepad, the previous blank backup then showed 2 full pages of work. Not sure if anything can be done as I am not a code guy but thought you should know!
