At the time of new file saving and opening an existing document, I see also the temporary files listed.
I like if I can do without those unwanted files listed.
I request someone help me.
this aren't backup files - those are temporary files created by windows. when u close file in SW corresponding file wiht '~' will also dissapear
If you find a option for it - please do share
Thanks for fixing my message.I just thought so.
I will share if I find a way.
Thanks again. I revised my post.
This is a Windows File Explorer feature. To change it open a File Explorer window and go here:
Then select View and then choose your option to show or hide these hidden files.
Lastly, you can select Apply to Folders to make this apply to all your File Explorer folder views.
been there looong time ago- doesn't work.
I actually like having the option to see those files. Whether they are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SWX, or other, they go away when I close the parent files. The only time I see them hanging around when they shouldn't is if the application crashes. In other words, I see these temporary files hanging around in some of my SWX directories.
I already have this set up in my Windows explorer.
But, the Solidworks PDM folder does not have those options.
I still could not get this around. For me, being these temporary files listed is a nuisance.
Could you try helping again. Thanks.
Sorry, I don't have any experience with PDM.

I do, I just ignore them...It'd be nice to toggle them off. I wonder if anyone from SW has anything to say on the matter?
I know Nadia Shea works for my VAR and she's sometimes on the forum. I believe she's good with PDM (my recollection may be off, though). Got any tricks to fix this with PDM, Nadia?
Thanks for the shout out.
My recommendations would be the Windows Explorer options already given. This behavior is by default controlled by those options. PDM does not have any options to control the view of those temp files. You could change user/group settings to 'Show only files that are part of the file vault' but I think it's actually good to see those temp files. It indicates the native application for that file type is not properly shutting down or release it's resources.
After that, I would ask if the local vault view is shared or private and what Windows User created the local vault view? I have seen corporate IT security generate some unexpected behavior in PDM vault views and those two questions above usually provide some unique insight into what is causing that.
Thanks a lot, Dennis.
I am currently on Solidworks. Despite I had the subscription since 2017, never used until Mid April 2020. Basically, I am exploring (to match my Inventor skills) and trying to get around all the issues on the way!
Have you tried this one?
But, this is the only application that I have this issue!
Go to Windows Explorer, click on Options, Change Folder and Search Options, select te View tab (at the top), scroll down in the list and check Hide protected operating system files.
When we added PDM here I think that each of us designers asked this question sooner or later. To date we have not found an answer. It would be great if there is some way to hide them.

Have you tried this fix from the Javelin blog?

Here are the relevant settings in the PDM admin tool (access this by right clicking on Users and clicking Settings).
