Cleaning Trash on Central Filesystems (Samba): Tuesday, 20-Dec-2022
Beginning on Tuesday, 20-Dec-2022, Trash folders on CLASSE central filesystems (a.k.a. samba) will be cleaned up on a daily basis: deleted files that have not been accessed in the past 90 days will be permanently removed from disk. Files removed in this fashion can be recovered from CLASSE backups
if they were on a backed-up filesystem and were backed up at least once. This change does not affect Trash or Recycle Bin folders on local Mac and Windows computers. However, CLASSE Linux systems (including individual desktops and laptops) are affected because all Linux filesystems are central. If you have any questions or concerns about automatic trash cleanup, please submit a ServiceRequest
