Deleting a Badly Named IFS File
July 19, 2002 Timothy Prickett Morgan
In regards to deleting poorly named files in the IFS, couldn’t you also map a network drive to the iSeries? Once you are there, you could use Windows Explorer or similar tool to delete the file.
Good suggestion, Wyatt. I tried it to see for myself how it worked. I used an FTP client to create a file named ‘lotusdata, then mapped the IFS directory as you suggested. Windows Explorer did not list the file.
