Greetings,

I have noticed that in our SASWork directory there are multiple files that have a very interesting naming convention, they don't seem to be removed when we run our clean up utility. I hope somebody can help me understand what these are. Can we just remove them?

 

Here is a couple of examples of the files:
-rw-rw-r-- 1 abc123  games     9371648 Dec  6 14:51 qeXXXXx5Akvo
-rw-rw-r-- 1 def456  games    10747904 Jan  8 09:57 qeXXXXOfgxa9

 

Thank you,

Enzo.

Since the SAS WORK file system is open for anyone to write to it, sometimes SAS users will copy non-SAS WORK files to this file system.
If the owner does not claim them, then just use a UNIX command (like rm) to remove them.
