files, in "My Documents" ... what are they?

Bought 1P for Windows, and my father keeps complaining that files get created everytime he launches 1P.

Does 1P just create backups right in the "My Docs" folder?

1Password Version: 4
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Win 7
Sync Type: Not Provided

    @gottaquestionboy: The default location is Documents > 1Password > Backups, but you can configure it however you like in 1Password File > Preferences > Backup. I guess my question is, why does he even notice that it's backing up? 1Password does this in the background, so I only see them if I go to restore one.

    By default, 1Password will create a backup daily if there are changes made (including data sync'd from another device). But you can change the frequency if you wish, though it's always good to have an up to date backup. I hope this helps! :)
