RC system engineers will begin actively clearing
/scratch files more than 90 days old beginning 10/14/2019.
/scratch is intended as a temporary work directory (90 days maximum).
It is not backed up and needs to be purged periodically in order to maintain a stable HPC environment. We encourage users to back up their important data.
RC offers several low-cost storage options to researchers.
