    Default $$files (tables ?)

    Hi there,

    I have a database which, over the months has managed to include many $$xxx.yyy files (tables ?)

    Can I delete these ? What is their use ?

    Attaching a screen dump.

    Can anyone advise ?

    Looking forward.

    Dave Mac

    Help file topic "Alpha Five File Types" lists these in the "Other" category. If you're not familiar with this topic why not take a look? The topic covers all the other mysterious file types you'll find in the database folder of your application, too.

    I think you'll also find some interesting and helpful stuff about this topic on this thread.

    I may need to be updated for A5v8 - don't know, haven't checked yet.

    That was a typo but it still may be true. (was intended to be "It may")
