I have a database that for some reason likes to make _Backup files of itself. It's not the most stable db so it crashes from time to time and creates these _Backup files. The users keep going into them to make updates then wonders why the origianl DB isn't getting updated. Compact on Close is unchecked.

Does anyone know how to turn that off? Or have the _Backup saved to a different folder?

And if you are interested in why the db crashes it usually has to do with users jumping through records to quickly on a form before some images have time to load.
