      I’m currently making summer camp videos for a non profit organization and I’m running into a problem when it comes to the backup files for videos I import to the camps computer.

      I’m using a Sony Handycam HDR-XR160 and every time I import video to the camp PC each video file comes with a .m2ts.moff file. The problem I’m running into is that when I move only the movie file from the imported folder, it makes another copy of the .m2ts.moff file. It’s beginning to clutter up most of my video archives. I’m wondering how I can stop the video camera from making these files, or at least stop them from duplicating themselves.

      I found this link ( that may provide an answer for you.

      It would appear that only your camera needs the .m2ts.moff and .modd files; that you can delete these files from your computer once the .m2ts file has been downloaded.

      Look online and you’ll find quite a bit of information regarding your “mystery” files.
