I'm creating more and more complex 3D mechanical models these days, and finding that it takes a long time to save these drawings, especially if they contain threaded holes. I hit "CTRL-S" and there is about a 2 minute delay before the save completes. This alone is not a problem. The problem is my work is interrupted by autosaves throughout the day. Apparently, I have three autosaves going on. A *.bak file is saved to my project folder (where the *.dwg resides). Another *.bak, and a *.sv$ go to an independent folder (Y:AUTOSAVES), that is called out in the Save File Path. (I believe our IT department set that up.) All three of these files are complete drawings, which can be opened by BricsCAD.
I know it is important to have a backup file. But how do I limit my backups to one extension and location?
Bricsys support told me the *.sv$ files are supposed to be temporary and disappear once I stop working on the associated *.dwg. However, they stay put until I delete them.
