/scratch Policy Enforcement

Beginning 10/14/2019 RC system engineers will begin actively clearing /scratch files that have not been accessed for 90 days. /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.
