    Anyone know how to disable this in SoundForge 6.0.
    Makes a real mess of my directory.

    The .SFK files are not associated with a program....unless you set them up in Windows to be associated with a program. You should be able to tell this just by looking at the file and see if there is an icon on the file. Therefore, in windows there is an option to "hide unknown file types." So if a file like .SFK is not associated with a particular program, then checking this option in Windows will make them hidden. Also, there is an option in the preferences that will allow Sound Forge to delete temporary meta data files when closed, if you would like them to be deleted when Sound Forge closes, then check this option.

    If you get rid of these you'll have to wait while SF scans the file every time you open it. Of course on todays computers that's no big deal.

    From time to time I search & destroy .sfk-files on finished projects to clean up. You can do this on whole harddisks/folders using the search function in windows. As someone already mentioned SF must rebuild these 'graphical' files
    when you reopen the waves, but this doesn't take long.
    BTW, Sony uses the same .sfk files in Acid and Vegas.

    "Delete temporary files on close" !
