[low priority] ThinAIR Backup message

ThinAIR backup message about reaching the limit is good thing,
but it does not say which file. So when I have opened multiple tabs and run some file, and some of the other tab is "over the backup limit", on the first sight it seems the limit is reached for file currently launched.

So just adding filename to the messagebox should fix this confusion :)

Hi Michael,

there were some complains recently, that the backup script mechanism creates too many files. To have some control over it, Eros added simple warning mechanism - if you are over 100 backup files, thinAir warns you with message box.

But as you can see on the screenshot, the message does not say which file is "overbackuped".

Yes, that's right. I have to improve that part.
I just recently set a quick warning.

What about adding a utility or some function under the FILE menu of thinAir to manage back ups? From there you could possibly delete, move, sort, sift, change options like how many back ups for a particular file or how often the file is backed up, etc ....

No more relevant as Backup mechanism is now user handled
