backup

Post by omer kircher »

I thought I submitted this question earlier, but I can't find it in the forum!

How do I enable backing up of files as the ae loaded?

I found the following in help, but it didn't help.

LoadBackup

This option enables or disables the backing up of files, as they are loaded for editing. If this option is enabled then every time a file (ie the file is not read only) is opened for editing a copy of the original file will be made to the backup directory.

There is no built-in option to create a backup on load. Files are only backed up when the file is saved.

But you could use the file load trigger to create a script that does a backup on load.

Hi Jussi:

Thanks again!

You say: "There is no built-in option to create a backup on load"

1) What does the help on Loadbackup mean?

2) Didn't backup on load used to be a default function?

3) If you have removed this function, then I would like to see you reinstate it. I have used the .bak files a number of times in the past to recover lost info.

I just checked the code and sure enough a backup is made when the file is loaded and after a specified time interval. So it looks like the help file is correct ;)

In any case the backup options are not found in the Optons, Editor Options, Backup panel.
