Put backups in a /Backup folder for organization purposes

I'm a little picky about my folders and I really don't like seeing : My Project.cpr followed by lot's of My Project.bak files
I think that would be vary good for cubase to automatically create a /Backup folder (Like it creates the /Audio, /Track Pictures, /Images and so on) to save these files and clear the clutter on the project folder.

Am I alone with that or it also bothers someone else ??

Thanks

I suppose this wouldn't hurt but, for me, I don't have a bunch of .bak files cluttering things as I have auto backup set it to run every 10 minutes, (5) max. So it's only (6) files total.

Again, it's not a bad idea but, I would not want this to get any priority over other more serious development issues. ;)

I vote for this! The main folder needs to be clean and tidy instead of a bunch of files. Imagine if you have several versions of one project, there will be tons of bak files.

I believe it's not a hard feature to add so won't get in the way of addressing other issues.

I have wanted this feature for a long time. If my .bak files can be assigned to a different folder, over the course of many projects the time saved for me will be significant, as it always takes me a few moments to distinguish which file to open.
