Deleting "~***.cr" file in a Directory: risk?

I habe a Problem with synchronization of a directory with my nextcloud.

In the vault in this directory I see some files with β€œ~” at the beginning. I seems to me that in this files lies the problem. So I deleted the Files (after backup the directory for a restore :slight_smile: ) After this action the synchronization works without problems.

Are these files of cryptomator and which function have this files? What are the risks of deleting such files?

Thank you for a answer.

Cryptomator doesn’t create files with β€œ~” at the beginning. Not sure, where they come from, maybe from the sync tool itself?

Thx. I use nextcloud. I think its a file created from nextcloud. I deleted and nothing happend. :grinning:
