[MU4 Issue]Add a feature to disable backup file

• May 20, 2024 - 14:47

In MS4,How To set .mscbackup to another directory or disable this backup?



Can you explain the unusual special circumstances that would require the addition of such an option? What is the actual problem you are trying to solve? Probably there is a better way to solve it than complicating the software/UI/documentation/support and also endangering your files.

I do think we should provide an option to disable the backup feature, for people who care about that tiny bit of wasted disk space. Also, especially on macOS, you might argue that the backup feature is somewhat redundant since you already have Time Machine, the system wide backup solution. (Of course, I know that this works quite differently from MuseScore's backup feature, but still.) Therefore I think we should provide the option to disable backups, just in Preferences > Advanced, like in MS 3.6.2.
