Auto-clean list?

#1

I remember reading (in a Newslettery I think) a while back about some specifically-named directories and files that a Happy DreamHost CleanUp Bot would remove for us every now and then in order to reclaim disk space, etc. You know, directories named “backup” or “temp” and the like residing in /home/user/. Has anyone ever noticed specific directories or filenames that are auto-cleaned, or was the bot script never actually implemented?

Nope, we don’t remove anything automatically. What you’re remembering is a few types of directories which don’t get backed up - the complete rule set is somewhat complex, but the primary directories we skip are ones named “cache”, “temp” (or “tmp”), and a few variants on “backups”.

Ahh, righto. Thanks for the super fast response.
