Description of Issue

I have roon set to backup the database into my documants folder. Now every folder in my documanets folder contains a file roon_backup. Its only 21 bytes, but it messes up the 'date last opened" which I often use to find old files.
How can I stop this happening please?

Create a sub directory and tell roon to put them there.


Hey @Shawn_Halpin,

Thanks for taking a moment to ask this. While we’re very sorry we didn’t get a chance to reply until today, it looks like @ged_hickman1 shared a great suggestion right away (thanks a lot!).

Did it help in your case?
