  • AMS auto-save problem

    Is there any way to change AMS's behavior on how it makes auto-saves? My problem is that AMS keeps on auto-saving even when the project is already saved and there have been no changes.

    For example, I have my auto-save enabled at 15 minute intervals with 128 saved copies (I admit I make a lot of mistakes sometimes). But then I will do something like be AFK or perusing forums for a while, and when I come back to AMS, it's saved 4 more copies of the same file. Out of my 128 files in the auto-save folder, there are probably 75 of them that are wasted saves.

    Can anything be changed in some of the AMS installation files or a registry entry or something? As it stands right now, I have to try to keep remembering to open a dummy project or close AMS altogether to keep valid auto-saves from being purged by repetitive copies.

    Thanks.

    PS: It's okay if nothing can be changed, but it can't hurt to ask...

    The auto saves are per project, but I not really played with them, I thought it did check if the saves was the same so I guess I was wrong there, what you could do is if you know you saved it then came back delete any that have a later time stamp then your main save.

      Yeah, thanks, Rex. That's what I've been doing. Well, that and trying to close the project or AMS completely.

        AMS maybe should be checking for project changes before autosaving, but it dont i guess, nothing can be done to change this, not by us anyway!

        export the APZ or "Save As" a different file each time you hit a small milestone and only use the autosave for that time where you are in real trouble, iv lost so much source in the past, i back save, dropbox and google drive everything now, it cant hurt to get into the habbit now and save losing projects later!
        Embrace change in your life, you never know, it could all work out for the best
