This is just a tutorial for those who would like to keep temp folder tidy and manage the computer memory. So In the Blender 2.73 the autosave file saves the original name of your file so for e.g. if you have monster.blend saved, Blender will save it as monster-RandomNumber.blend in the tmp folder [ATTACH=CONFIG]356750[/ATTACH].
And every time you work on the same file Blender will save the file with new change but with different RandomNumber. With this you will have a lot IMHO trash files something like:
So if you don’t want to clean them by hand like me do this:
Setup a blender temp directory that is unique i.e. c:\blend_temp
Create a folder to store the quit.blend (I really don’t understand this file so better keep there) I have C:\codes
Set blender to save it’s autosave files there.
Create a batch file to delete the files. open notepad and type in the command
copy C:\blend_temp\quit.blend C:\codes del c:\blend_temp\*.* /q copy C:\codes\quit.blend C:\blend_temp del C:\codes\*.* /q
Save the file somewhere you will know how to find it. like c:\del-blend-temp.cmd
Run it when you want to clean your tmp folder.
As always have good day and happy blending
