Monster Huge Autosave folder???

Postby strider72 » March 8th, 2016, 3:37 pm

My hard drive has been mysteriously running out of space recently, and I just discovered a folder in my Library called "Autosave Information". It contains copies of Swift Publisher files going back for months — something like 30 GB of what appear to be redundant files.

1) Can I delete these files? Are they basically just backups?

2) PLEASE FIX THIS BUG. The files I've been working on total around 3 GB. The app should not be eating ten times that amount in support files!

We'll look into this problem.
What versions of Swift Publisher and OS X are on your computer?

You can delete Swift Publisher documents from the Autosave Information folder, but make sure that you have the most recent copies of these files where you save your documents.

Out of interest, I had a look in my Library and found 52 SP4 files from the last 8 months, only totalled 46MB though. They were all called 'Unsaved Swift Publisher 4' and numbered. Also a few Printworks files.
Plus a file - com.belightsoft.Printworks
4.0.4 and 10.8.5.
