Consider deleting your save files after the fix has been permanently applied, the system has been saved (SAVSYS), and you no longer want to distribute the save file to another system. Use the Delete PTF (DLTPTF) command or the Management Central cleanup function. For instructions, see _Cleaning up fixes_ <ed: below>

Deleting save files with the DLTPTF command

From the character-based interface, use the Delete Program Temporary Fix (DLTPTF) command to delete PTF save files and cover letters. Do not use the Delete File (DLTF) command to delete PTF save files. If you use the DLTF command, the PTF function will not detect that you deleted the save file.

Note: Fix save files and cover letters for a previous release are removed during automatic cleanup if system logs are specified.
