why is it that in revit when you work on a file and change the views there seem to be more files when you save. is there a way to just have one file only.

I assume you are talking about the backup files that get saved each time.

Ex: Project0801.0001.rvt, Project0801.0002.rvt and so on.

These are the backup files basically they are snap shots of you file from its previous save so you can open them if your current gets corrupt.

 

An easy way to change the number is when you do a save as; hit the options button in the save as dialog.

Again these files are back up files. See my earlier post on how to get rid of these.

The I-Cohouse.0002.rvt, I-Cohouse.003.rvt and I-Cohouse.0004.rvt are just incremental saves there for you so if something happens to your current file you can just continue working from a previous save.
