The Question is:
How can I tell when a file was last accessed?
We have a system here which has grown in file quantity over a period of 6
years and many files we suspect are no longer needed.
DIR/FULL will show created and revised dates, but what if the file is viewed
or accessed without any changes being made? Is this information available ?
We are reluctant to delete files without the knowledge of whether they are
still being used for lookup .
Thanks in advance
The Answer is :
Use the file expiration dates mechanism. These dates are updated on
file access (if necessary). Please see HELP SET VOLUME/RETENTION
Part of the DII COE effort will more directly provide this mechanism
within the file system.
