From Recover InDesign documents

About InDesign automatic document recovery

While you make changes to an InDesign document, InDesign performs a mini-save of the changes once every minute. InDesign stores these changes in temporary files in the InDesign Recovery folder, adds the changes to the document, and then deletes the temporary files every time you choose File > Save. If InDesign shuts down unexpectedly, InDesign attempts to use these temporary files to recover unsaved changes to the document.

And...

Many of us save our files to Dropbox these days because Dropbox keeps snapshots of all changes made to files within the past 30 days (or longer with Extended Version History or Dropbox Business). You can recover older versions of files, restore deleted files, or undo deletion events.
