Default Erasing Back-Up Session Files

I've been looking for the spot in Preferences where I can limit how many seesions are backed up.. I know a session is automaticaly saved every so often, but I must have 15 to 30 files in my Seeion Back Up Folder and would like to limit the number of sessions saved when I close out of a session to a manageable number.. In the meantime, is it possible to highlight more than one back up session at a time to delete them? Haven't been able to figure that out yet.. Thank you

Default Re: Erasing Back-Up Session Files

Not a great idea. You can have corruption enter a session and not know about it right away. If you auto back every 5 minutes; that’s a lot of backups in a 10 hour session. Of course if you stop every hour or so and back up the entire session and audio to a different drive you may not need so many auto backs. But unfortunately not many do this. You can however tell PT to back up less often.
