BAK files issue?

Post by utkuluk » Sat Mar 23, 2019 12:20 am

I search forums for "bak file", and only one topic about my issue comes up, and that didn't solve it.

I mean, I don't want to disable backup option but:

1) Why they are not stored at some common folder?
2) Forget that, why they are not even hidden?

Just because of this disturbing bak files I was about to delete this program, I wanted to ask about this in here before I do.

I have moved your post to the correct forum, since it is about FreeOffice.

SoftMaker Office supports multi-generational backup in a common folder. FreeOffice has one generation of backup files in the same folder as the document.

Time to uninstall it.

I suggest then that you stay clear of Microsoft Office as well because it does it the same way as FreeOffice (only that backup files are off by default).
