Temporary Files Prefixed
Script Editor creates these
temporary files under the circumstances:
- Untitled project or script is
being executed (a new file that was not saved yet).
- Project or script with
unsaved changes is being executed.
The temporary file is marked as
hidden. The file name consists of the prefix "~$" and
the original file name. The file is created in the folder where
the original file is. In case of 'Untitled' file, where the
folder is not yet known, the default folder of the current
Workspace is used.
The temporary file is automatically deleted when the original
file is closed.
When a file is being opened, and
the corresponding temporary file is found in the folder, the user
is offered to restore the very latest changes from this temporary
