Minimum number of automatic backups

The minimum number of backups is now three. Would love to see the option for two and one as well.

It’s possible to disable automatic backups altogether, either on a per project basis (Project → Project Settings → Backup) or overall (Scrivener → Preferences → Backups). Obviously you should make sure you have a trustworthy alternative before you do this.

If you do disable automatic backups, you can make a manual backup at any time with the File → backup → Backup Now command.
