Hi, best practise is to put those files into a QTemporaryDir or create them as 
QTemporaryFile to avoid contamination from a previous test run. Also you 
should not change input data during a test that will be needed unchanged for 
another test run but prefer copying it to a temporary location.

Best regards,
