Running Rhino 7, Autosave is going to recycle bin instead of usual folder


I have my autosave set to the usual C:\Users\rbaltera\AppData\Local\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0\AutoSave\RhinoAutosave.3dm
Unfortunately they keep on going to the recycle bin.
What’s the trick to make sure they go to correct folder?

Please feel free to contact me at or

Thank you!

When Rhino deletes them to make a new autosave file, the deleted one goes to the Recycle Bin.
That is a HUGE safety net in the event the current autosave file is not there or damaged. Then you have a previous file you can Restore, Rename, and Open to recover your work.

Hello John,
Thanks for the expedient response, its much appreciated.
We love Rhino!

While this is a nifty feature, and one that I do use, you can turn it off if you don’t want it.

Go to tools/options/advanced and search for “recycle” and uncheck it.


Thank you!
