Question

The backup files in the Silicon Labs IDE can clutter up a large project.  Is there a way to move them to a subdirectory, or reduce the number of backup files created?

Answer

You cannot generate backup files in a subdirectory, but you can control the number of backup files created by going to [Options]>[File Backup Setting].
