Trying to save an Auto-Recovered SolidWorks file never works.

Any time SolidWorks crashes on me and has happened to create an Auto-Recovered version of the file, when I try to save this file I get this message.


Then, no matter the situation, when I click ok, I then always get this message.


Since I can remember, I have never been able to use an Auto-Recovered file.


Also, just to clarify, since I've been at my current job, I've been through an upgrade from SolidWorks 2011 to 2012, 2012 to 2013, and 2013 to 2014. (with EPDM upgrades also). I have also been through 3 different workstation computers with fresh installs. I have experienced this problem on all builds of SolidWorks and all workstations. Has anyone here been able to use the Auto-Recovery feature and save successfully in a PDM Vault? Also to clarify, I always make sure I have the files checked out when I want to save changes.
