Hi Folks.

When every I close down my MacBook I empty the trash. However, as soon as I open it again there is always the same thing in the trash.

The folder reads "Recovered Files" and when I open it reads

Last login: Sun Jun 12 02:29:09 on console
/Users/newuser/Desktop/wkresources ; exit;
Owner-10:~ newuser$ /Users/newuser/Desktop/wkresources ; exit;
-bash: /Users/newuser/Desktop/wkresources: cannot execute binary file
logout

[Process completed]

Any Ideas what this is about?

Thanks.

It's a MS Office file. That's about all I remember about it - don't use Ooffice on my Mac.

Should be plenty enuff on google about it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Hi and welcome to the forums . . .

You have nothing to worry about as the recovered files are temporary files used by the Mac applications. Usually temporary files are deleted by an application when it no longer needs them. If an application quits unexpectedly, the temporary files may not be deleted by the application. When you restart your computer, Mac OS X moves these temporary files to the Trash.

HTH

Cheers

Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!

Moved to appropriate forum. Not a subject for the "Lounge".

Are you using Office 2011? If you are, it's a bug that dumps a "Recovered Files" folder in the Trash that will appear after closing Office down and you reboot.
