Guys, when every i open a Microsoft office file or foxit pdf files exact another file is automatically created with ~$ infront of it.
Eg- i have a file name work.doc then when i open it another file ~$work.doc is created automatically with exact same size. Any solutions/what is the cause?

Hi

That's not a problem. ~$ infront only means it's a temp file created because the original is open. They disappear when you close the original.
