Title: Dosbox Run - backup
Post by: scott_furphies on September 30, 2020, 07:57:25 PM
Hi all!
I realised the other day that my game folder was HUGE and when I looked around I realised that it was backing up my game files every time I run the game! I was worried for a moment my game would require more floppies than King's Quest XXXXVIII!

How do I get run.exe to stop backing up my game files?

Don't use it? You don't need it for the current Companion.

I'm aware that companion can run the game, but SciAudio wasn't starting with companion.
I tried numerous approaches, and the only thing that worked was run.exe.

I'd really appreciate some constructive suggestions,
cheers.

Thanks Collector! That's the run I need!
