What are these files? How are they being generated? Are they needed? What can I do to prevent this?
They all look like __CRX7373799929299388.dat
I have these on my Staging server and on local dev installs of CQ5
This happens when you upload a package the temp file is not getting cleaned. The size of file will be equal to package size u are loading. As a temporary workaround once package is uploaded and installed you can delete those temp file Or run cron job to clean temporarily. Once Service pack 2 is released it might have fix for it.
