Avoiding excess temp files

Dear all,

I've recently noticed that I get a build-up of about thirty or forty temp files even on relatively short translations. These are presumably due to my tendency to press Control-S (save) every two minutes or so, and the temp files disappear as soon as I close the file, but I still find it very irritating.

Can anyone tell me if I can change the settings on my computer to avoid or minimise this?

Many thanks


Ian

Hi Ian

Maybe this is what you mean. Here you can choose to mark and unmark options such as backup copies and AutoRecover.

HTH:-)

Hi! you can set your Autosave function at 2 min in word, and you do not need to press Crtl + S to save.This way you do not generate multiple Backup files ( temp files but only one, which will perpetually be overwritten every 2 min. That helps - brandis
