Abandoned HPSS files will be deleted October 1

July 26, 2019

More than 22 million abandoned files will be deleted from the High Performance Storage System (HPSS) on Tuesday, October 1. HPSS files are considered abandoned when the project and/or file owner's user ID have been inactive for at least 12 months and CISL did not receive responses from either the files’ owners or the project leads after multiple subsequent notifications. More than 460 users have been notified of the pending deletions. 

Information on the abandoned data holdings, by project and user, is available here.
