Target Version0.20 
Summary0004313: Set "Maximum number of backup files" default to a larger number
DescriptionPlease set the default maximum number of backup files to a larger number, it is currently set at 1. I suggest a setting of 20, this is what it used to be set to. I can think of no down-side to doing this.
Steps To ReproduceLook in Preferences-Document-Maximum number of backup files.
Additional Information1 backup could easily be over-written if there is model problem. The user might restart FreeCAD a couple times trying to figure out what's wrong and could possibly lose their good version of the model.

I see the value of 1 set in 0.18.16 and in (just downloaded) 19.204.

I think OP means minimum here...not maximum
