Odd file left on desktop

  adrian.d 23:42 14 Sep 2003

Can anyone explain why I occasionally have a file left on my desktop I is named ~ . Yes a little squiggle known I believe as a tilde and is 176k in size. Puzzling me....

I have been deleting them as regular as they appear. Any ideas?

If you do a search in the box above, entering just ~ there are a few posts about that file, adrian.d.

Thanks to MAJ and exodus for pointing me in the right direction re the tilde file. Not as sinister as first thought.
