Hi here.

Back to this forum, and still loving hydrogen since years!

(sorry my dictionnary is out)

 I would like to diseable the "autosave" option, that make lots of ".autosave" file and ".autosave.autosave" and ".autosave.autosave.autosave"...

When I simply load songs.

Please how to do that?

Best,

Hi thijs,

I am not the one that asked the question but I have problems with autosave files as well.

In my case, I am using linux. H2 version 0.9.6

I was looking for a way to change the directory where the autosave files shoud be stored or deactivate autosave a all. I guess the first option is better.
Is it possible ?

Regards,
Jeff

Hi xzu!

This sounds definetly like a bug! When exactly are those files being created? And which version of hydrogen and which operating system are you using?

Best Regards,

Sebastian

I'm using Hydrogen 0.9.6-beta3 on Kubuntu 14.04 and have the same problem. Every time I run a pattern that I've created myself Hyrogen generates a (filename).autosave.h2song file. I don't do songs, per se, I've always used Hydrogen as a drum machine, more or less, repeating patterns that I created.

At any rate, I can't find a way to turn of the autosave.

Hi! 

I'm going to put a "turn off autosave" button on my todo list for the next days. Can you tell me a little bit more about your autosave problem? What exactly is disturbing you? Are the autosave-files staying there after hydrogen closes? If its a bug, it would be great if you could write us a small bug report: https://github.com/hydrogen-music/hydrogen
