My user\backup folder contains over 266,000 files, all pertaining to two calc files I open once daily. The backup files are continuing to be created whether those two calc files are open or not, at a rate of over 700/day!!

Why is this happening?

The files are likely recovery information, rather than backup files. You probably have the interval for this setting at something like 2 minutes. Related help page here.
