You are Welcome amigo :)
Glad you have solved it now.

How to close it out -
Click Modify on your first post in the thread and there "can be" a drop down menu, to select "solved".
"Can be" - is not there in some section of forums.

If you wish to, on your forum profile if you add your website url, there will appear on left below your username (next to PM icon) an icon, it can be clicked for people to visit your website, also can add in signature.

Thx bitsnpcs.
I opened them with gedit.
I have a website and these are old backups of my website pages.
Some are dated back to 2014.
 I hadn't turned on the hidden files before so I hadn't noticed them.
No fret no worry.
Appreciate the guidance.

I'm not on the forum much so now I'll go find out how to close this out.

Hello Amigo,

have you made a system backup ?
These can be those files on hard drive.
Also they can be after updates for some software, the backup of previous version.

.htm are html files, you can open it with a browser, a html editor, text editor etc.
Example if you making a website, and have the .html files in folder at desktop you can open these locally in the browser to see how they look before uploading the file to your webhost/or making it live at that/or making edits without taking page offline then to switch page after finished, it can be used for other ways like this for different such as a manual, instructions and such.
That is if a manual is made html for website, if that htm file is stored on a users computer, they can then view that offline.

It is not any need to worry or fret.

If you unsure of connections from software you download, you can do -

Hold down Ctrl key and Alt key and press t (Ctrl Alt + t)
Type in to terminal this, make terminal full screen

Code: [Select]
sudo netstat -anlp
type your password when asked.

I've noticed I have a lot of hidden folders with the recycle symbol on them.
They are duplicates of my regular folders.
I can't open them.
When I try, the "Open with..." comes up, with this statement... Open filename.htm~ and other files of type "backup file" with:

I'm not familiar with this file and wonder if there is any cause to fret and worry.

Thx
Amigo
