On the execute machine, HTCondor creates a temporary directory for each job to run in. All files for the job are stored there while the job runs and the directory is deleted when the job completes. There are no configuration parameters to disable the cleanup of this directory.

On the gatekeeper machine, Globus GRAM keeps job-related files in directories under the user's home directory. These directories are deleted when the GRAM client (e.g. Condor-G) tells it to do so.

Why do you want to keep these files on the execute machine after they've been transferred back to the job submitter?
