Autosave saves my 1.5GB file every minute. How can i stop it?

I'm dealing with aligning several high-poly, textured meshes in one session, and Autosave is making it impossible to work. The autosave file is around 1.5 GB in size on average, which I expect. It takes like 45 seconds or moer to save the autosave, then it does it again a minute later. What the hell? I tried changing the meshmixer.ini in (my documents/meshmixer) to AutoSaveIntervalSeconds=9000 and don't know what the default is anymore.

Editing the ini is the only way I know to change the AutoSave interval. You need to edit it while MM is shut down.

Default is 60 seconds. Means the ini line is:

AutoSaveIntervalSeconds=60

 

On WIN meshmixer.ini should be located at:

C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\meshmixer.ini

on MAC at:

~/.config/Autodesk/meshmixer.ini

(Note that AppData as well as .config are hidden by OS defaults)

 

You need to edit this file at that location not some file existing in documents/meshmixer

Just to add for those not familiar with Mac path finding:

Choose "Go to Folder" from the Finder's Go menu and put the path there.

" ~/.config/Autodesk/meshmixer.ini " as above from MagWeb,,

 

thanks a tonne, your king!!

It is about the 10th line down. Send a screen shot.

Now I feel like a dippy, thank you.

 

I was using notepads search feature and it wasn't finding anything.
