    How to turn off eps saving backup file as <filename>-01.eps?

    Wayne Lim

      Hi all,


      I'm not at sure how I came about this/which box was ticked in saving options but whenever I save eps files, Illustrator will also save another backup file with '-01' after the filename and before the extension '.eps'. Also, whenever I save the document (as opposed to 'save as') a dialogue box will appear asking me if I want to replace the already existing file. Obviously I do.


      My question is: How do I turn this option off?


      NOTE: as far as I know, this problem of mine is only limited to .eps files, or more precisely it doesn't seem to happen when saving .ai files.
