Hi, How do you remove the _original version from the image in Metadata. What setting do I have on that makes it do that?
Takes up unnecessary space on the hard drive. Just a RAW file is enough for me.

Ja suomeksi jos täällä on suomalaisia:
Hei, Miten saa pois Metatiedoissa tulevan _original version kuvasta. Mikä asetus on minulla päällä, että se tuon tekee ?
Vie turhaa tilaa kovalevyllä. Minulle riittää pelkkä RAW-tiedosto.

I have noticed that using "Edit IPTC" on raw photos (without an existing sidecar file) makes ExifTool write metadata into the raw file (creating an _original backup, if set so), while it should, I suppose, only create a sidecar file. This might be a bug. "Edit XMP" behaves as expected.

Here is a picture of the file:

That "edit-xmp" makes the same extra _original file....
It hasn't helped either, I delete the whole program and download it again.
Byt should find a program that does that correctly.....suggestions?
