Surprise Copies in other directories.

Post by CWizard »

Overall, IMHO, XnViewMP is the best graphics viewer I've used, especially in Linux.

The following problem has happened several times and it rather troublesome.
I'll edit a photo, e.g., crop it and enhance the contrast, and then save the changes.
Hours or days or months later I'll be in an entirely different directory and stumble
across a copy of the photo. I wasn't anywhere near that directory when the photo
was edited, so how did a copy end up there, and, more importantly, how can
this be prevented?
Thank you.

you find a copy of the previous edited file in another folder? original or new one?
