Does anyone know why ~ files are being created on the desktop, I think by OE as they appear to contain email address lists amongst other code when opened with Excel. Thet are not the temp file *.~?? just called ~ with no file extension. Neil
It is to do with backing up your Outlook Express address book. There is a link here that explains it much better than I can. click here
You can delete them. By now it's a well known OE bug. They seem to come into being when you make changes to the Address Book.
recently I had this file appear on the desktop when I definitely did not change the address book in any way.
Thanks guys, this seems to be the one!Oh and martjc, I doubt you would have to physically change the address book yourself, i would imagine just getting an email from or replying to a new source would change your book.
