This would be a great feature. Also a way to migrate these files into a folder within the projects folder hierarchy instead of a catch all "all projects" backup would be super useful

Tough I don't like to code for such core/essential features,
here is a demo of how a script could behave:





(limit set to 5, sorting is simply made from alphabetical timestamp, and backups in a special backup folder)


Timestamp pattern is strict to be sure no other files is deleted.

(maybe I should stick to REAPER default time pattern EDIT: done. (not in screenshot))

Cool. Is that script downloadable?

@Coachz
Nope,



Script deleting files needs careful testing :P


I modified it so that it works without much settings,


- automatic backupat save
- add timestamp via reaper
- no subfolder (like .rpp) which is the defualt behavior for saves

@Coachz
Due to the sensitive nature of this action, I prefer to be prudent and maybe not release it with my other script (certified 100% safe :P) at least for now



I think the pattern is solid enough to not delete any wrong file, but lets have other users be sure of that first.



here is the script : https://gist.github.com/X-Raym/015d7...6b397daa5a5ed7



This is what your setting have to be:





Please test it carefully before using this on critical projects.


Thx !

+1 this is a really necessary feature and I also delete several gigabytes of .rpp-bak files every day

Meanwhile, note that my script works. I used it as replacement of the default Save As option.

And this automatic backup needs to happen in the background, not lock up the user interface during the saving process.

Default Still needed :-)

If any Reaper developers or other employees are reading this, please would you now seriously consider implementing this request (which was submitted nearly three years ago).

We are not asking for some special or esoteric enhancement - we are simply asking you to finish the excellent job you started.

Having an automatic backup function is an essential and very valuable core component of Reaper, but it should not require customers to delve into the file system at regular intervals to manage the space utilisation.

So come on guys, please move this up your priority list !

Thanks.

I removed the script from this gist link for easier code management,
so it is with all my other premium scripts,
though I'm considering releasing it if devs don't do something about this request.

Area selection is taking major place for the new release. Cockos team is a short dev team made of maybe 2 or 3. lets be patient , this will come for sure
This and a freeze dedicated folder are two things that many really need.

Keep “XX’ most recent backups is a very much needed feature that should be built in. It certainly has been in in the others DAW environments I work in. Thanks X-Raym, for your efforts. Hopefully once dev’s release 6.14, they can work on this. +1
