- How do I remove hidden backup files? 3 answers
Ive got Ubuntu desktop up and running on my N54L microserver. I've noticed however that if I'm looking at a folder on the microserver from my Windows 7 laptop, if I make a change to a file on Ubuntu and save the file, on Windows it creates a copy (or a reference) of the file but with a ~ on the end.
I can't see it on Ubuntu, only on Windows, and if I delete the original file, the ~ file remains. I can delete the ~ file at any time; it doesn't seem to make any difference to the actual file. Can anyone enlighten me as to what's going on?
