It should be "c:/Users/username/HOME/.emacs.d/autosave/Rfiles/address@hidden!opt!bee!home!username!test!coxph_bench.r.~2~", because it is in server in not in "c:/plink...." and there should be "!drive_c" added.

Maybe I'm confused, but what did you expect to happen instead?  When
files are backed-up in a single directory, the drive letters cannot be
kept because Windows doesn't allow colons in file names.
