28-day Automatic File Purge on /scratch starting November 1, 2016
HPC Operations currently purges files that have not been accessed for more than 90 days on the Peregrine /scratch file system. Files that have not been read in more than 90 days are eligible for automatic deletion. However, starting November 1st, files that have not been accessed in more than 28 days will be eligible for deletion. Plan your HPC work flow to make copies of important data to either the /projects file system, or to /mss storage for long-term archive.
Remember the /scratch file system is NOT backed up, once files are deleted they cannot be recovered. If you would like assistance, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to create a service request ticket.
