What is the ~f1 file?

Postby nizinamazowiecka » Wed Sep 07, 2016 2:36 am

Hi,
why eviews creates files with ~f1 extension? Do I need them? For large wf1 files it doubles the space I need on my hard drive?

Can I tur off the creation of ~f1 files?



Thanks,
KJ

No need. Yes, they're created automatically.

Do these backups get stored somewhere on my pc? Should I clear them out now and again so they don't take up too much space?
