Re: [Condor-users] Behaviour of Windows "copy" command?

mkdir poop

idea is almost certainly the best thing to do since then it gets cleared up by condor! Remember that after 1000 jobs or more disks start filling up and even with small files it can be a problem after a while

That of course assumes that the working directory when those commands are issued (and actually, for the entirety of the job's lifetime) is the Condor job's execute directory. That's a dangerous assumption. If it were me at the very least I'd be making sure that TEMP was set to a full path not a relative one.

(And of course you have to remember to copy/move any files you want
 returned when the job completes to the Condor job's execute directory,
 otherwise Condor won't return them for you (but, in this scenario, they
 still will be deleted whether or not they are returned!).)
