XnView deletes .bak files

Post by Hacker » Fri Aug 31, 2018 1:24 pm

Hi *.*,
XnView 2.45 on Windows 7 x64.
Options - General - File Operations - [ ] For lossless operations, make a backup is unchecked.

I have an image.jpg and its backup copy image.jpg.bak.
I open image.jpg in the Viewer, create a rectangular selection within the image, select Tools - JPEG Lossless transformations - Crop.
image.jpg.bak gets deleted.

Is this somehow by design or a bug? I don't really like my backups being deleted without any reasonable reason.

TIA
Roman

the .bak is deleted when you save the file?

Hi Pierre,
I do not explicitly save the file, it gets saved automatically when I click Tools - JPEG Lossless transformations - Crop. No save necessary. (Perhaps there is an option I have changed to set this behavior, honestly I do not know.)
