If I recall correctly, the reclaim spool storage process removes the members of files in the QSPL library. Since members do take up space (approximately 8.2K) even without data in them, you could get a lot of space back if your system generates large numbers of spooled files. I imagine if your job logs were small (a page or less), deleting them would not impact system disk space much since the data in the member would be substantially less than the space occupied by the empty member. This is, of course, all according to my admittedly flawed memory. Donald R. Fisher, III Project Manager The Roomstore Furniture Company (804) 784-7600 ext. 2124 DFisher@roomstoreeast.com <clip> A couple thousand job logs were deleted and we did not regain the disk space until the spool storage was reclaimed. Also, if the system were to run as you suggest, then what would be the purpose of the reclaiming storage command? <clip>
