Unwanted files appear after synchronising
I use Bravura EasySync with a Plugable Windows Transfer Cable to synchronise my desktop PC folders and files on to my laptop using Windows 10 on both devices. This creates - or reveals - large numbers of temp and other unwanted files on the laptop, all with names starting with ~$ or just ~, which I have to delete manually. Some have a .tmp file extension, others are .docx. When I search for files starting with ~ I get the message ‘Windows cannot find ‘~’.’ So I cannot delete them collectively.
These files don’t show on the desktop PC even when I view hidden items. And they don’t disappear on the laptop when I uncheck View / Hidden items.
Many thanks for any help or advice.
