I think what you are doing should work. I looked at the code and I don't see any issues (but I could be overlooking a bug).

In case you did not do this, try exiting prime95. Look in prime.txt to see if NumBackupFiles is set properly. Restart prime95.

Also try turning off Jacobi error checking (see undoc.txt). Prime95 might be creating one non-Jacobi checked save file and one Jacobi-checked save file. You could also try setting JacobiBackupFiles to zero.

BTW, I really don't recommend having so few save files. One bad spot on the disk can wipe out days of work.
