Posting in general channel generates junk files


If I post message in “general” channel it generates junk files in uploaded files list. Though these files disappear after page reload. Affects not only browser, but desktop app too.

I was able to reproduce this :upside_down_face:

Definitely not the expected behavior.

Can you please open an issue at Issues · RocketChat/Rocket.Chat · GitHub ?

In fact, there is the correct place to post issues, and keep here or Rocket.Chat for community support.


Thank you! I will open issue on github till the end of the week, I think.
I just thought, that it is already opened, but I searched not so deeply, because of that I opened topic on the forum.
Btw, reopening files panel gets rid of junk files.

Thanks for pointing this out!

Also, good to note that it only happens with the attachment tab opened.
