When you open a PDF, a copy is automatically created on local drive (Downloads or the folder you've chosen) and when you close the PDF, this copy is not deleted. I've clients that work with extremely confidential documents that share with other people only for wieing. This is a big problem, as no one wants a copy of your confidential document in the local drive of other people, even though it´s protected with Adobe Rights Management.

Is there any way to prevent it or to delete this copy after closing the file?

Thank you

It's impossible to view a PDF file without first downloading it to the computer. When you open a file directly from the browser it downloads is first as a temporary file in its Cache folders, then opens it using the default PDF application, and later on deletes it. Either way, it has be be saved locally.

When you open a PDF how? For example, do you open it by clicking a link in a web browser? If so, the browser controls the download and might (or might not) run Acrobat and might (or might not) wait and try to delete the file.
