**iPod Touch 5 - iOS 9.3.5 - HanDBase 4.9.073
**MacBook Pro (Mid 2012, 15”) - OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 - HanDBase 4.512.
I discovered too many files in my desktop backup folder. Is there a way to stop keeping so many copies?
My current file directory
/Users/glenforister/Documents/HanDBase/Glens iPod touch
has 185 items which includes “Backup” and “Archive” directories.
I have my Desktop HandBase program configured with the “Edit Sync Settings” window with sync settings
“Number of Backups to keep for this database” = 5.
“Synchronize this database”
That window also shows “previously synced databases” = 109.
Therefore, I can’t see why in my desktop “Backup” folder:
/Users/glenforister/Documents/HanDBase/Glens iPod touch/Backup
there are 5,044 files.
This is a problem mostly when I try to do a backup of my HanDBase folder and it takes so long to back it up.
The question: Are the sync settings of “5” backups to keep for each database actually being used, or is it keeping everything. Those files go back to 2014, with anywhere from 8 to 48 copies of each database in that directory.
Hope someone can tell me what is going wrong???
