Automatic save at the end of turn

Hello,
Is there a way to prevent automatic save at the end of turns (Axis and Allies)?
Regards

Not via in-game menu but you can in Windows:
  • navigate to %UserProfile%\Documents\My Games\Panzer Corps\Save folder (copy-paste in windows explorer address bar)
  • right-click on Autosave file(s) and set Read-only attribute in Properties
This prevents the game from writing in them (can't even delete from in-game). However they will still be visible on the save list. At least in time they'll drop down as newer saves get on top.

Thank you for the answer.
Unfortunately, I only want automatic backups to be no longer visible in the save and load screen.

An app like FreeFileSync to automatically move them to another folder.

The problem is not the Autosave (Axis) and Autosave (Allies) files in the save directory but the appearance of the name in the save and load screen.
I often play several campaigns at the same time and sometimes in French which also implies a French backup name ...
I have taken the good habit of systematically saving the game at the end of each turn with the name of the current campaign and also at the beginning of the first deployment turn of each campaign scenario.
So it starts to really make a lot of saves and automatic save are useless.
But this annoyance is not vital, so I just want to know if there is a way in the configuration of the game to avoid automatic saves. This is possible in many computer games so why not Panzer Corps ?
Thank you all for your responses
Regards
Yves

PS: my antivirus refuses to download the file FreeFilesSync and I do not want to run any risk for such a small problem
