Purging of Hopper scratch file systems to start on Mar 14

February 28, 2012 by Helen He

The purging for the Hopper scratch file systems will start from Wednesday, March 14.  The files in your $SCRATCH and $SCRATCH2 will be deleted ("purged") if they are older (defined by last access time) than 12 weeks once the purge starts.  

Please take some time now to clean up contents, back up all important files (eg. to HPSS), and reduce your overall usage as much as you can.
