Since the last patch, Adobe Animate CC 2019.2 does save a RECOVER-file on each save. I mean what logic is behind it to have a duplicate of the just saved file. Any way to get rid of that superstupid beheavior?

Having no autosaves is clearly not the goal, it should just delete the RECOVER-file when a fresh save is done.

Anyway thanks kglad 😃

Hi - As part of save time optimization, now the recovery file gets created via disk copy as soon as the file is saved for the first time (if the file is not saved but it reaches the trigger then it will create a recovery file in the app preferences location). In addition when the next recovery triggers it will perform an incremental save on top of the auto recovery file which is already created and hence will take much lesser time compared to writing down everything from scratch. The auto recovery file will be deleted when the file is closed but will remain if the app crashes. Hope this helps.

Thanks!

Well the software is doing it each time you save the file, save time is maybe optimized and still does not save time for guys with many small files, especially not with todays fast SSDs.

Kglad answered that you can untick autosave to get rid of the recovery-files, which helps in a short term but should not be the goal in my eyes. Better would be to have these two things separated in the preferences panel. Having an autosave every 30 minutes is not the same as having the whole file system messed up when you work on 30-40 files at the same time with a team of 9-10 people.

Simply add a checkbox called 'optimize save time' for example and switch in the old function for the rest as it was, so people can choose what fits best for them.

By the way, you could also lower the save time by doing the fla-zipping with proper multicore support.
