Recovered Files from TRASH after REBOOT..

Every once in awhile when I reboot my Mac Mini, I notice files in a "Recovered Files" Folder in the TRASH, I typically just delete it. I was curious what was being recovered so I pulled it out to look inside and saw a dozen plus files of imageCacheMAXXXXX (XXXXX = some number). I dragged the files into GrapicConverter and found all of the files to be of the same topic, paper cutout artwork. Bizarre. I have no idea where those came from, never seen any of it before, even in any browser. Thoughts on what that is? I plan to spot check the recovered files occassionally to take a look...

Why would I have recovered files anyway? I typically make sure all programs are not running when I select RESTART or SHUTDOWN.

Those files are from caches that are cleaned out at shutdown or startup. Not to worry. Apple has a KB article about this.

I get the same thing from my aol e-mail with images.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Curiously enough, this has started happening on my Mini, too. Is this the result of an update? I've owned this machine for at least a year and don't recall ever witnessing this behavior except in the last couple months or so.
