Empty Files in the User Documents Folder

Does anyone know what to call the Empty Files that appear in the User Documents Folder on a QlikView Server?

How do they get created?

Are they needed, or can they just be deleted?

Thanks,

Hi Brent,

I would recommend you to contact your admin team before deleting this files.

Although those are empty files.

Also please do a virus scan of your PC.

They look a lot like the temporary folders I have in AppData\Local\Temp or in \Windows\Temp

I don't think there is any danger in deleting them altogether (they're empty and a few months old) But you should make sure that no other application (or service) is using your Document Root Folder as a Temp folder (or a garbage bin).

HI,

There are the temp files that are created before the QVW is named. There shouldn't be a problem deleting them, but it would concern me that they are there. I would keep an eye on it and if you start seeing them again, contact support.

What version are you running?
