    Default $$M Files ?

    Can anyone tell me why files with the extension .$$M are being placed into the database folder?

    Also, why files with the extesion .SEM are sometime placed on my Desktop for no reason.

    Thanks.

    Ant.

    Check out any forms that are based upon the table/set as I have found many times that they will no longer open due to corruption....and the only remedy I have found is to replace the damaged file with a backup. So the earlier this is noticed the better. Although I have not had it happen in v10 to see if Alpha's built in backup would work so try that first if indeed a restore from backup is necessary.
