I wouldn't disable, but put the backups aside:
;; Backups to central location
(setq make-backup-files t ; backup my files
backup-by-copying t ; don't clobber sym-links
backup-directory-alist '(("." . "~/.emacs.d/
Sicherungen")) ;don't litter
delete-old-versions t ; some time it can be enough ...
version-control t ; use versioned backups
vc-make-backup-files t ; make backups for cvs projects
