Where are versions stored and how can you tell if an untitled file was auto saved even though you didn't want it to be?

    In a hidden folder named .DocumentRevisions-V100 in the root directory of your hard drive.

    You need to "show invisibles" in the Terminal copy & paste...

    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

    Press return

     

    If you don't want to use Terminal you can use a GUI utlitly that does that, just google for one.

    You may need to use a text editor to read that, or X-Code to work with it, if that's possible.
