For all systems, the minimum scratch space retention period was selected that would be long enough to allow users to retain temporary files and directory structures in WORKDIR but small enough to prevent the need to delete files and directory structures less than 15 days old. In extreme emergency situations system administrators may be forced to delete WORKDIR files and directory structures less than 15 days old until sufficient disk space is freed up. In the event of such extreme circumstances, center staff will make every effort to preserve user data as well as contact affected users to aid in the recovery of their valuable data. To minimize the times when early deletion of WORKDIR files and directory structures is required, users are encouraged to use WORKDIR efficiently and economically.
