Hello Everyone. Every since updating cura to 5.2.1 I am having 2 files show up on my memory card after saving a sliced file.  One is the name of the file ( 123test.gcode) the other is ._123test.gcode. If i try to print the ._123test.gcode, it will just complete the file right away. the other file prints fine. When browsing through my memory card on the computer, those files aren't there, but they show up on the printers menu when going to print. any idea?

    Hey @tysonwald,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    Thanks for your report 👍


    This is the first time I've heard of this. 

    So I think it might be related to your hardware.

    In my file explorer I have a checkmark that shows Hidden Items. 

    Can you check if this makes your files show up on your USB stick?
