Hi. Last time i checked i have 14 autosave folders, each of them between 2 and 3 Gbs.  So they take a good chunk out of the already stressed SSD in which Archicad is installed.  

 

Can i deleted some of these folders? or can i reduce the number of these folders? even half could greatly help.

 

Thanks

Yes you can.

in older versions of Archicad, if there were too many autosave folders, then Archicad would not open until you deleted some of them.

only delete them if there are no copies of Archicad running and you haven't had Archicad crash that day.

these folder are located in the user folder/Graphisoft on a PC.
