I have a strange hidden text file on my Desktop called
.userchain. It's 48 bytes long and consists of 3 seemingly random alpha-numeric 10 character blocks, the second and third of which are preceeded by a \ character. Each block is separated by a tab character and there is a final solitary \ character at the end.
The file is being used by something because the modified date is yesterday afternoon, though I cannot remember what I was doing at the time!
file on the file path indicates that it was created on Sun Sep 2 02:02:05 2018. I can't remember what I was doing then, although if I had to guess, I would think that I would have been asleep.
Can I delete the file or at least move it somewhere else without causing my machine any harm?
