Compatible with Stardew Valley 1.5+ on Linux, Mac, and Windows. Requires SMAPI 3.0 or later.

Install
  1. Install the latest version of SMAPI.
  2. Download this mod and unzip it into Stardew Valley/Mods.
  3. Run the game using SMAPI.

Usage
Your saves will be backed up automatically before you play and each in-game night. 

Here's how to find your save backups:
  1. Find your save folder.
  2. Go up one folder.
  3. Open the Backed_Up_Saves folder.

To edit where your nightly and preplay saves back up to open up the config file in version 1.8.0+ and find the appropriate fields. Make sure the entire path is surrounded by quotes.

It's recommended to use "/" slashes to separate your path ESPECIALLY if you are on a windows machine. Otherwise separate your path using double "\\" 

If you type in a path that doesn't exist then the mod should create that directory at that path for you.
