swxJRNL.swj randomly in vault

I have a mysterious journal file that has poped into an empty vault I'm working on. They file (file A) that the journal file relates to has never been in EPDM. I opened file A to do a quick dimension check and custom propery correction from a non vault directory. On top of everything, solidworks has been having trouble with creating journal files as the program thinks that another instance of solidworks is already running (which it is not). The journal file error goes away when I clear my temp file folder, but comes back if I close and re open solidworks. I have not been able to ascertain whether or not solid works is actually failing to create journal files as journal files do show up.


So my main question is:


-What can I do about the journal file in the vault? It will not let me delete it or move it and it is not wanted in that particular folder.


My secondary question:


-Is there a way to fix the journal file error at solidworks start up?


Thank you!
