Starting on February 15th, files on /mnt/scratch (/mnt/gs21) that have not been modified within the last 45 days will be deleted. Due to technical issues, this purge has not been running and older files have not been regularly removed from scratch/gs21. This issue has been fixed and automatic deletion will resume on February 15th. Users should ensure that any data older than 45 days on scratch/gs21 that they wish to save has been moved to persistent storage (home/research spaces or external storage.)

This will not impact home directories or research spaces. As a reminder, scratch space is not backed up.
