During certain operations, Windows clients may create temporary files. In a namespace, these files correspond to successfully created objects.

As with any other new object stored through the CIFS protocol, the retention period for such an object is determined by the namespace configuration. If the object ends up being under retention, it remains in the namespace after the operation completes and cannot be deleted until its retention period expires.

Tip: When writing applications, be sure to take into account that objects created for temporary files may be closed and made WORM unexpectedly. Once this happens, the application cannot reopen the object.
