Actually, you can stop it.

If you press Alt, then F, then T in Word to get to Options, go down to Save
then tab through and uncheck Save To Additional Places.

Now it will or should always ask you.

All the best

Steve

Hi Adrian, if it's in one drive, this is standard and there doesn't seem to
be a way to stop it. A pain! tom
