Hi guys, i have a problem with my Backups files...
for some reason when i save my project, for some reason the files

.capx.backup1
.capx.backup2
.capx.backup3

get bigger overtime...

for example i save one time and the files become 700mb i save 10 minutes later and the files become 1.4gb i save 5 minutes later and the files become 2.6gbs... i dont know wy its doing this to me...the project does not have any big sprites or graphics...

when the files become bigger... everytime i save the saving takes up to 30 minutes... its really annoying. can someone give me support :/

Operating system & service pack:
Win8 SP1
Construct 2 version:
r158.2

Can you provide a project that reproduces this issue?

no... the project has creations of many people, unless there is a way to send you the caproj privately to you ashley.

i think i fixed it by moving the backup folder out of my project folder...

i figure it out... finally

Yeah, the backup folder should not be the project folder! If you do that, each backup file will include all the other backup files, causing them to grow in size.
