In this tutorial, we will discuss the purpose of the
.asv file generated by MATLAB.
.asv File in MATLAB
.asv file is an autosave file that is generated by MATLAB when you are working on your code. The purpose of this file is to store data temporarily so that so should not lose your data in case the computer crashes. The file will be deleted when you turn off MATLAB. If you don’t want this autosave functionality, you can disable it within MATLAB. To disable autosave, go to file then preferences then editor then debugger, and then autosave, and now turn off the autosave. Note, you can lose data in case the computer crashes.
