I listed this as a 'framework' component because it's related to Issue 61099 - the recovery popup. Please adjust as needed. I find the recovery process very annoying. I want to stop it. If I lose a file that's my problem. Part of this is that you should NEVERuse popups - they get in the way of doing things quickly. Please putan option in the popup AND in the main panel options to remove this feature. It needs to be in the main panel too so someone can turn it back on if they are so inclined. Another alternative is to put up a message on the main screen (in red for example, but NEVER moving!!) which indicates that there are files to be recovered. This would be rather nice actually. Just a little message that one can clear if one wants (or, again, shut down forever).

This surly not a defect. Autorecovery works as designed. But for future releases I think it is good idea. Thanx.
