Does anyone know what the files with $ signs in front of them are? SW just started making them today, but I cannot open them, and the original files are still there. Why are they being created, or how can I make them stop being created?
those files are how windows programs keep track of what files are currently open in any application - you will not be able to stop SW from creating them.
they should though be automatically deleted when the file and/or application is closed. and you can set your windows folder options to not show them if you like (uncheck show hidden files)
My administrator had just changed a setting that shows hidden files this afternoon. That's why I only started noticing them today.
