This would be a great feature. Also a way to migrate these files into a folder within the projects folder hierarchy instead of a catch all "all projects" backup would be super useful

Tough I don't like to code for such core/essential features,
here is a demo of how a script could behave:





(limit set to 5, sorting is simply made from alphabetical timestamp, and backups in a special backup folder)


Timestamp pattern is strict to be sure no other files is deleted.

(maybe I should stick to REAPER default time pattern EDIT: done. (not in screenshot))

Cool. Is that script downloadable?

@Coachz
Nope,



Script deleting files needs careful testing :P


I modified it so that it works without much settings,


- automatic backupat save
- add timestamp via reaper
- no subfolder (like .rpp) which is the defualt behavior for saves

@Coachz
Due to the sensitive nature of this action, I prefer to be prudent and maybe not release it with my other script (certified 100% safe :P) at least for now



I think the pattern is solid enough to not delete any wrong file, but lets have other users be sure of that first.



here is the script : https://gist.github.com/X-Raym/015d7...6b397daa5a5ed7



This is what your setting have to be:





Please test it carefully before using this on critical projects.


Thx !
