I downloaded a lot of driver files for my pc on my mac and then moved them over to a folder I keep stuff for my thinkpad. Today I noticed 3 files ending in part whose names don't match anything I've downloaded as far as I can tell. They are ViA_1Doy.txt.part, lkrmoZPX.txt.part, & ABPKZlg9.exe.part. I've noticed that while mac is in the process of downloading a file it has a second file - DownloadingFilesname.part that goes away once the download's complete. How did I get leftover *.part files w/ weird file names?
