I have a problem with an unknown file being stored on my terastation. Called cifsxxxx?

I have a strange file that is being left in my terastation. They are named cifs1adsb. It starts with cifs, followed by a single number and then four letters. They seem to be the same size as what should be in its place, so I am guessing that they are incomplete files. Like a part file when you download a zip file from Mozilla Firefox.

The files stored are coming from, mainly, Unix OS boxes but in some cases from a Windows OS.

I know what cifs stand for and resemble I just want to ensure I am getting it right. I want to delete these files off the terastation.

The answer I am looking for is a explanation to what they are and where they come from.

Thanks to all that reply.

They are basically temp files from the cifs filesystem
