Temporary Files Prefixed with "~$"

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 file.
