Notepad++ no longer saves temp files
When I first installed Notepad++, I had the ability to create a new document tab and use it as a temporary holder. This was handy if I was in the middle of something but had to reboot or something and didn’t want to lose text, but didn’t really want to save it either. All of a sudden, this functionality no longer seems to work. Every time I close I get prompted to save any modified documents. Is there an option somewhere that got changed or do you have any idea what might be causing this?
looks like your backup settings aren’t set.
Settings->Preferences->Backup and enable session snapshot and periodic backup.
I’m not sure how that setting got turned off, but turning it back on corrected my issue. Thanks.
I have the same issue and i verified that the backup setup is present
i have also the flag on “remember session on…” but i can’t save the session :(
I’ve noticed that if you have Multi-Instance turned on, the Backup feature only works on the first instance opened. For additional instances, you need to save/backup the files manually. Is this the issue?
