Two- and three-way folder compare and merge issues.

Under the options menu there is a checkbox for create backup files but I can't find a reference as to where these files are located when performing a compare.
A simple test would have also answered your question.

The configuration option Create backup copy for files creates a copy of a file before saving modifications in the same directory by appending ".bak" to the original name of the file.

For example:

C:\Temp\Test\Test.txt

is backed up as

C:\Temp\Test\Test.txt.bak


The configuration option Create backup copy of zip archives for zip archives creates a copy of a zip archive before repacking a zip archive in the same directory by inserting "Bak" before ".zip".

For example:

C:\Temp\Test\Test.zip

is backed up as

C:\Temp\Test\TestBak.zip

I thought this was the case. I wanted to confirm as I did a folder compare and accidentally accepted the changes including my backup files. The program doesn't appear to generate backup files if the files being compared have a .bak extension.
