BeerSmith2 Files are Showing up 6 Times in the Folder
« on: January 05, 2012, 03:00:42 PM »
In my BeerSmith2 folder, in MyDocuments, the BeerSmith2 files (yeast, grains, water, equipment, etc) are showing up 6 times.  I.e. there are 6 files all named equipment.bsmx, equipment1.bsmx, equipment2.bsmx, equipment3.bsmx, equipment4.bsmx, equipment5.bsmx, and this is the case for all of the files (yeast, grains, water, equipment, etc).  Why is this the case and can I stop it?

From what I understand they're backups. Why would you want to stop them, they're small files. Even if these were still the days of 8GB being a large hardddrive instead of a camera card the amount of space that folder takes as it is is nothing.
I have 7 backups of that folder and probably won't start deleting the old ones for a long time.

Hi,
 Yes - they are all automatic backups and it is generally a good thing!

Is there an option to possibly set how many backups it creates, with a minimum of 0?
