Our project folders are automatically populated by numerous Unix Exec files whenever someone works on that project. How do we stop these files from auto-generating?

Please note that there isn't any error messages. Just these randomly generated files that the user need to manually delete from the project folder each time

Hello, 

This problem is also happening to me. Here's a few details so that maybe you can help us more: I am not in a shared environment, but an at-home solo freelance environment. have all of the scratch disks set to a, "cache," folder where I can delete them when needed, but these files still populate wherever the project file is located. This has actually been happening to me since about late 2017, through multiple updates of Premiere, up until now April of 2020. In lieu of a solution, I have just been making a project file folder dedicated to just the project file itself, inorder to accumulate all of these seemingly cache files that generate with the file. But this appears to be a glitch of some kind, as the file names of these phantom cache files look similar to the file naming convention of the other cache. To also test the amount of time it takes to generate, I created a fresh project, set all the scratch disks to the "cache" folder I created, and simply clicked around the project for about 15 seconds. When I hid the application and looked at finder, it showed one of these phantom files:

When looking at the, "Get Info," pane, it says the file type is a, "Unix Executable," file:

Please anyone let me know if there is a solution I'm not thinking of. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I'm having the same issue, not in a shared environment. Is there a solution to this? Using the latest version of Adobe Premiere 2022.
