Set "Purge Immediate" on folder, subfolders and files
Posted on 2006-07-13
Does anyone know of a way to set the "Purge Immediate" attribute in a way that will automatically cascade to all subfolders and files, or perhaps an entire volume? (Netware 6.5)
My situation is that we're running two HD's, one holds SYS volume and a DATA volume (including GroupWise) and the other holds user files. I'd like to keep the user directories salvageable, so I don't want to turn on the global 'immediate purge of deleted files' SET option. However, I'd like to have both the SYS and DATA volumes completely purge-immediate because of all the various temp and log files that pile up quickly.
I've tried just setting the purge immediate attribute on a folder (GroupWise WPCSIN and WPCSOUT for example) from XP explorer, but the existing subfolders and files don't inherit that attribute. I becomes quite a pain to go through each level of subfolders to set the attribute. The toolbox.nlm get's all of the files, but doesn't affect the subfolders, so it doesn't really help much when you're dealing with very dynamic folders.
