Option to overwrite when autosaving

A lot of times i have made huge mistakes or been attacked and everybody has died and don’t want to start a new game, so when i go to reload my autosave it is almost a month in game time back, and i will lose tons of progress. There should be a setting (in the settings obviously) which will allow the occasional autosave to overwrite the last save wether it was another autosave or a manual overwrite/new save.
