unusual file added during export

I exported about 50 PDF files and noticed one unexpected file was also added to the destination. The file was named “DEVONtech_storage” and is about 12kb. I performed the export from my global inbox. Any ideas what this file is and how I can prevent it in the future?

Thanks.

DT puts that file in any folder to which you export files and folders. It’s a helper file, in case you reimport from that folder or index it later. It’s not essential, only has meaning to DT, and is safely deleted.

Thanks for the info.

Seems like that should be an optional file. It’s not helpful for bulk or batched exports. DT should keep internal files internal and not expose them to the users file system like that.
