File created during FTP

Msg#: 4657185 posted 7:45 pm on Mar 25, 2014 (gmt 0)

Just went in to my FTP program and downloaded an html file form one of my websites to edit. The folder where I downloaded it to was completely empty. When I navigated to the folder on my PC the html file was there but also another file called.... Answer.txt When opened it's contents are...

Any idea on how it got generated and where it came from? I am using FTP Commander for FTP'ing into site and the file is not located anywhere that I can see on my server.

The server you connected to, was it a Windows or Linux server?

If it was a Windows server this may be a text file from Active Directory.

Is this, or similar file, located anywhere else on your PC?

Does the timestamp of this file coincide with your FTP transfer?

There appears to be many comments linking the generation of "Answer.txt" with "FTP Commander", but nothing particularly conclusive?!
