I work at a photo printing shop and sometimes when customers bring in their USB, they have strange transparent copies of their files next to the real ones, only with a full-stop at the beginning. They can't be opened or viewed in any way as far as I've tried.
Sometimes these 'ghost' files don't even have a counterpart.
I didn't really give them any thought until someone transferred them onto one of our printers and crashed it.
I was just wondering what they were and what causes them?
I've attached a screenshot of them (I blurred the thumbnail previews for privacy reasons)
