Backup Projects folder over 3 gig

Good day!

I noticed I have over 579 folders and 4,521 Dorico files in my Backup Project folder and it’s taking up over 3.31 GB. It looks like there are numerous copies (up to 10 ) of every file I ever opened in Dorico.

I would like to reclaim some disk space. Can these folders and Dorico files be deleted? Or is this not recommended?

Many thanks.

Yes, you can certainly delete those folders and reclaim some space. Dorico doesn’t rely on the files in the Backup Projects folder at all: they are purely there for your convenience and peace of mind. If you want Dorico to keep fewer backups in future there are options for this in Preferences.

came here to ask the same question. glad to know it is a directory that can be cleared from time to time. I have all the files within the Backup Projects directory backed up externally, but like OP was looking to optimize the local disk. Thanks!
