Don't ever overwrite or delete recover files #2174
I just lost some serious progress because I closed LMMS after recovering from a crash and forgot to save the project. LMMS deleted the recover.mmpz file and my progress is lost forver. It'd be great if it didn't do that, and name the recover files with Process ID and date like this:

Ouch! Sorry about your data loss. Been there...
The line removing the recovery file is here:
How does other programs do it?
