No, there are no backup files produced. But normally, the files
shouldn't be corrupted (unless, perhaps, the computer crashes exactly
while Tw is trying to save a file). Could it be that the hard disk was
damaged somehow or something?
In any case, if you could send me the two files, I could have a closer look.
