Backup Sets in Live 10

  • Live Versions: Live 10 and higher
  • Operating System: All

Live 10 has introduced a file handling improvement that automatically creates a Backup folder within a Project after a Live Set is saved.

This folder contains the 10 most recently saved versions of the Set. You can access the backups either via the Live Browser or directly from within the Project Folder on your hard drive:

This feature can be useful, for example, if you have accidentally overwritten a Project file or would like to access a previous version of your Live Set that was not explicitly saved.

Please note: Live automatically deletes the oldest backup set once it reaches more than 10 backups. These deleted sets will be moved to the trash bin. You can identify these as backup sets by the timestamp in brackets:
