Is it possible to stop emacs from backing up file in a directory? I have a directory that I use for documenting changes I made to the computer. The files in it are small but I need to make 1 everyday so I imagine its gonna be messy.

Org mode might be a better choice here, but I'm curious if I can disable file backup in this directory instead. Emacs back up is a good feature for my other files so I don't want to diable it altogether.
