I keep finding that .htpasswd & .htaccess keeps reappearing in wp-content/uploads. I've read elsewhere that these files are related to this plugin. I'm using this plugin but have selected 'NO' where it says: Lock files - If you select "Yes" all files will locked by a .htaccess file and only users with access can download files.
However, as I browse around my website and/or admin area, I will find that certain images aren't being displayed on the live website, and when I check the /wp-content/uploads/ folder, sure enough, the .htpasswd and .htaccess files have re-appeared. When I delete them, the images re-appear.
How do I go about stopping these files from re-appearing? Is something in this plugin broken?
