Default 558GB of Session File Backups... (!)

Now that we're allowed to use Spotlight with PT11, it was easy for me to find out the huge amount of space being taken up by my Session File Backups. Managed to greatly reduce the size of my finished-project archive by batch-trashing these.

Pro tools crashes frequently enough, so I am in the backup folder often and have been deleting them regularly for some time

Also there is a preference to only keep a certain number of these backups - I only keep 10 and backup every 3 minutes
HDX - PT12.5.1 - HD I/O 16x8x8
Win10-Pro (v1709)- 6 Core i7-6850k - ASUS X99 Deluxe ii
