Bug : anki backup doesnt respect settings


im trying to have anki not make local backups at all.

I set all of these values 0, but that didnt help (i.e. anki still makes backups after operations which trigger backup)…

no addons.

tried restarting anki and computer. reinstalling too. backup folder in %appdata%/Anki2/username continues to be created.

anki 2.1.51 (Python 3.9.7 Qt 6.2.2 PyQt 6.2.2), windows 10.

It is not possible to disable the backup that happens before a full download, colpkg import or DB check. You should be able to set minutes to 9999 and weekly to 1 to limit other automatic backups to once a week.
