Denemo does not have any code in it that would allow you to delete a
score from disk once you have saved it to disk. Short of writing a
custom command in Scheme this shouldn't be possible.
So unless you have your own customised extensions to Denemo I think you
need to look at things like cron jobs doing backups that might be
responsible. I have one for example that backs up .denemo files and
some option would probably make it possible to move rather than copy
the files making them disappear from their original location. Do you
have backups? Do you have custom commands/palette buttons etc?
