Hello all
I am using buoyantboussinesqPimpleFoam.
While running it without any modification in each time directory I have 1 U and 1T file

But after adding some probes at 4 points (always active) and field average (not active most time) in control dict there are
1 U 1U_0 1T and 1T_0 file generated. From manual comaprison I find U and U_0 to be the same and just occupying 2*space.

Is it any issue , or is there any reason for generation of these extra files in each time directory.

Hope the changes I made in controldict (no other changes made) is the probable reason for the generation of files:
