Change the backup behavior to save to original DGN file folder

In V7 by default the backup file was saved to the same directory as the original DGN file.

In V8i the application behavior seems different as all DGN files are being backed up into the same folder. Is it possible to change the V8i backup behavior to V7-like? 


This can be achieved by defining the MS_BACKUP Variable to "$%$(_DGNDIR)'
