TMP files not deleted

During the transfer of a file, the file has been deleted on the origin device. On the second device is now a file called “~syncthing~Exercises.pptx.tmp” which is not deleted. Is this a bug? I am already on version 13 and both machines are windows pcs.

These files are automatically deleted after 24 hours. You can change this setting with keepTemporariesH in the advanced config

This means that the file never finished transferring (maybe one of your devices went offline before the transfer could complete?) Syncthing keeps a temporary file containing the data it managed to transfer so far around for a while, so it doesn’t need to start over from the beginning.

As uok said, it’s deleted after a period of time.
