What folder has this? Some application must have created this when it was first

run, that folder name will be the clue. I don't have such a file myself.



The folder name is "bin" and appeared in the Home directory... /home/user/bin/check-home, to make it clear. I just noticed the folder and the file yesterday night, but the "modified date" is begining april.*

I don't remember installing new software, apart from*gimp-plugin-registry*via the terminal.*

I couldn't find anything on*Google about this "check-home" file.*Thanks,*Lucas
