Some sites download normally, without creating these files. Others download leaving these empty files left behind.
I believe the problem is new since I upgraded to 1550, but I may have just noticed it. The files at least are all dated since the upgrade.
Is there something I should check?
If this doesn`t apply to your case, can you find some small site (100-200 files), downloading which you find these temp files kept even after exiting Offline Explorer? If so, I will do my best to reproduce and fix the problem.
You`re also right that OE deletes the files when you exit -- but I don`t exit OE, I leave it running 24/7 doing scheduled downloads, so these files build up. Perhaps this is the reason OE gradually consumes resources until the machine panics. With 1.5G of memory and a *lot* of sites downloaded, OE lasts a couple of weeks before I need to stop and restart it, so I haven`t considered this much of an issue.
A site that causes this behavior is "http://aimeekitty.deviantart.com/". Use a level of zero so it just fetches the first page. Each download leaves two files open on my machine.
Also I have to say that OE is GREAT! Obviously I use it a lot!
I made some changes in the code that should prevent Offline Explorer from accumulating these temporary files. However I cannot upload the updated version right now, because I am on a slow GRPS connection while travelling.
I will be absent for 1.5 weeks. If this an urgent thing for you, please let me know.
Thank you for pointing us to the issue.
