I have my backups set to be infinity # of backups. on Windows 11

Yet, when I close, old backups more than 5 (which I believe is the original setting) are deleted. Only ever have 5 backups.

Anyone else have this problem?

v2022.6 4097

    Yup - it's a bug. The code fails and then sets 5 as the number, I have reported it.

    Sorry haven't had time yet. Thanks for looking into it! Would a patch come out for the version I'm using or only the newest version?

    If it’s fixed then only the upcoming version.

    In the meantime, just set it to a high number (not infinity).

    FYI - It’s fixed in build 5046(Alpha)…
