    What are these strange files in Remote Documents list?

    What you're seeing here are the files that are generated in order to see the document preview. You should only see these files if you are the SP site admin, they should be hidden from all other users. We have an open feature request to remove these files from the list for the site admin as well. If you are not the site admin and can see these files, please report the issue in this group by starting a discussion.
