Every time you save Revit automatically create these kind of files ,*.0001, that at the end of the day is filling up your hard drive with unnecessary files. Here you have the routines I’m to get rid of them. It’s very easy to make them work:

  1. Copy the 4 files attached in the zip files to the root of your family library or projects folder.
  2. Run DELETE_families backups or DELETE_revit backups.
