backup files in project

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Mar 04, 2012 6:45 am

Hia,

Does this *.backup1 have the whole project in one capx file or something?

Is it automatically created (cos I didn't) and is there a way to turn it off?

Does it do any harm to delete that backup1 file?

It does contain your entire project, and you shouldn't turn it off, in case software/hardware error causes your project to become corrupt, since you can then recover it from the backup1 file.

Oh sweet! :)

In addition to this, I'm using git to version the whole directory. :D
