G'day everyone

I did a job in WFP (latest version) and the client sent me three memory files, namely a TXT, a JTX and a TXT with "lockFile" in the name. I did not use the client's TMs (he knows). When I used WFP once, with a different TM, it created a lockFile TXT file, but when I used it again (with this job), with a new TM, it did not create the lockFile file. What is this file and is it important in any way? There seems to be the expectation that I send the client all three these files (along with the translated TXMLs, of course).
