Reminder: GLADE project space purge policy enforcement begins soon

August 1, 2019

CISL will begin enforcing the purge policy for files in the /glade/p file space on October 1 as described in this Daily Bulletin article. Starting on that date, files will be purged if they have not been accessed in 18 months. On the first Tuesday of each subsequent month, the retention period will be shortened by one month until the 12-month limit is fully implemented in April 2020. 

The detailed schedule is provided below. Users will be notified well in advance of any changes to this schedule. 

Retention period implementation dates

  • 18 months – October 1, 2019

  • 17 months – November 5, 2019

  • 16 months – December 3, 2019

  • 15 months – January 7, 2020

  • 14 months – February 4, 2020

  • 13 months – March 3, 2020

  • 12 months – April 7, 2020

CISL will deploy data management tools this summer that will include utilities to help users identify files that are nearing the purge limits.
