(automatic?) purging of backup files
Tue, 20 Aug 2002 22:27:17 -0400 (EDT)
Does anyone think that it would be a good idea to have automatic purging
of GNUcash's backup files after a while?
I use GNUcash quite a bit and my main account file has gotten fairly big:
mozart [~/]> ll Life/GNUcash/RJM
-rw-rw-r-- 1 morriss morriss 3922360 Aug 20 21:49 Life/GNUcash/RJM
that's fine, but the backups are killing me:
mozart [~/]> du -sk Life/GNUcash/
I assume that I can delete the old ".xac" and ".log" files with no
problems, but shouldn't GNUcash clean up these things periodically?
E.g., "There are backups more than 3 months old, would you like to delete
them to save disk space?"
