For the last few years, every release of InDesign has meant older files have to be converted in order to be opened -and then trigger the save as dialog when closing it instead of just overwriting the same file.

why can't it be seamless just as with Photoshop where i can open my old files from years back with no conversion involved?

If you are not using OSX here is a Javascript version of the save script I posted in the link above:

 

var doc = app.activeDocument;
var fp = doc.filePath;
var n = doc.name;

if (doc.converted) {
    doc.save (File(fp + "/" + n))
} else {
    doc.save()
}
