Lightroom 4 only really needs the LRCAT file (and maybe some settings files), but LR4 is creating Previews.lrdata folders on my system. It takes a long time to do backups with all the extra files and folders. Do I have something checked causing all of the extra files and folders? I looked in the prefs and catalogs settings and don't see anything unusual.

Even if I delete all of the preview folders, LR immediately starts rebuilding them.

Thanks in advance,
M. Jackson
