Re: Garbage files are generating

Can you elaborate? Where are these files getting generated? When are they getting generated - While executing some command?

Re: Garbage files are generating

Strange. I have not heard of this so far. Can't imagine the OS being at fault here.
Could it be caused by some misbehaving user application?

Are you able to do 'ls -l' on the directory?

What does 'file ' give?
