    Backup option of Notepad++ is very useful, But it only creates backup when we modify the opened files in Notepad++ only.
    There should be an option "Enable backup for reload files" such that :
    If any file is opened in Notepad++ and modified by other program, Notepad++ asks for reload option AND
    if we press "Yes", a backup of previous version of file should be created.

    Please let me know if there is any way to do so EXCEPT "autosave" or "autosave2" plugins.
    Or shall I post it in Feature Request...
