OK I see.

Yea, TD creates an unlimited number of files. file-backups creates the 
number of files you allow it, to create (PLUS 1 for the "out of order" 
save). So the size should be deterministic.


I was thinking about the possibility to create something like a "Snapshot 
Save". Which will do a similar thing as the "out of order" backup, but with 
the possibility to configure a "snapshot-name". ... like: myWiki-(Version 
1) ... where "Version 1" is the snapshot name and can be anything. 

Following our discussion, I think there should be a different directory 
setting for the snapshots. Defaulting to twSnapshots
