Is there any way to write playlists to disk on change?

Lately my neighborhood is suffering from a lot of power outages and when that happens, I lose all changes done to my playlists.
I noticed that the only time my playlists are actually written to disk is on a proper foobar close.

So is there any option to write the playlists to disk whenever they change, or at least every X minutes?

Autosave & Autobackup (aka, foo_jesus)

Select how often to save in Preferences > Advanced > Autosave... (keep it conservative though, no need to set it every minute)

Be sure to modify the 'Files and directories to backup' to include playlists* so current versions backup the right folder (see documentation link) - this is just for the zip archive.

You can also manually save by [hold SHIFT key] > File > Save Configuration (or make it a toolbar button) and just click it after you have made major changes.
