    Is it not possible to set the Backup Folder to the current working directory?

    When I uncheck [ ] Save Backups to Backup Folder ,
    Then the Backup Folder: gets greyed out.

    When I check,
    [x] Save Backups to Backup Folder
    [x] Save Backups to the Same Folder
    AND Set,
    Backup Folder: .BackUp(EMEdit)

    The Backup Folder gets automatically changed to
    LOCATION_OF_EMEDITOR_INSTALLBackUp(EMEdit)

    I don’t believe any APP should be attempting to save backups to the program files directory…

    Is there no way to set the Backup Folder relative to the current files location?

    Hello CrashNBurn,

    It is not possible now, but I will consider improving this function. Thanks for your inputs!

    Thanks, it would make accessing the backed-up saves easier, without polluting the active directory with so many files.

    I move them manually but then the number sequence starts over — To then move the BackedUp files to the rest, it becomes a little more complicated:
    1) Rename the files to be moved.
    2) Move the files.
    3) Sort by Date.
    4) Apply a Rename/Mask with [C]ounter in TotalCommander’s MRT (multi-rename tool).
