Hi Dave,

It's on the top menu under "SAVE", click on it & select NONE" to "try anyway" & halt saving of the .wav files.

Hi Kari,

I noticed you said that others are not having this issue, I just
checked, and I had 57 GB of .wav files, which are now deleted...

Can someone direct me to the control which turns off, and on, the saving
of .wav files?  I looked all over and can not seem to locate it.

Running 2.3.0 GA release.

73, and thanks,
Dave (NK7Z)
