Just remember that these are not backups, it uses a function called copy on write, so it saves a new list instead of overwriting existing, JD then removes older lists after time or maybe x lists present (one of the two). Saving a new list is based on activity, as in without activity there is no need to save.

I don't believe anything has changed, respective settings to look at

settings > advanced settings > filter: save delay.

Don't fight the system, use it to your advantage. :]

Question save copy of activity

it well may be, but it does not seems to stop, I am removing files all the time.
The 'Minimum save delay' is set to 5000 (if this is seconds, you see that there is something strange) I am seeing a new file each minute or so...

I do not see a setting for max-save-database-copy.

Nothing has changed. JDownloader uses CopyOnWrite (create new file, delete oldest/older files)
JDownloader will wait minimum (in ms)
and maximum (in ms)
to save current list to disk. Default is wait minimum 5 secs after last change and max 60 secs.

You can change the number of kept files via
GeneralSettings.keepxoldlists (default 5)
