Reformatting $SCRATCH2 file system next Thursday June 16th -- Files DELETED

June 10, 2011 by Helen He (0 Comments)

Next Thursday, June 16th, we will be reformatting the $SCRATCH2 file system on Hopper and all files will be DELETED.  Thank you to the many users who have already moved files out of $SCRATCH2.  If you haven't moved your data, please make sure to back up it up to HPSS or move it to the $SCRATCH file system.

Because the reformat will occur in less than a week and we want to make sure important user data is not lost, NERSC will take a snapshot (backup) of the remaining data in $SCRATCH2 between now and Thursday.   If you write to the $SCRATCH2 file system after we take the snapshot though, your data will not be saved.  We suggest you not use the $SCRATCH2 file system until after the reformatting June 16th.
