Delete Exported Files

After performing a query plan analysis, use the Delete Files feature to delete individual export files that are no longer needed.

Depending on the export options selected, a number of files are created when emulation information is exported from a target system to a test system. The Delete Files feature reads the .mcf file and, depending on the export options chosen, removes the corresponding files:

  • .ddl
  • 130.col
  • .dem
  • .log
  • .opt
  • .pack
  • .qcd
  • .ras
  • .rpt
  • .sql
  • .undo
  • .mcf
  • Note: If necessary, the deleted files can be restored from the Recycle Bin. The files are automatically restored to the appropriate directory.

    To delete files

    1 From the main window, click .

    The Delete Files dialog box appears and displays the available .mcf files.

    2 Select the .mcf file to delete.

    The preview pane on the right displays information about the file such as source system information. To close the preview pane, clear the Show Preview check box.

    Note: Only .mcf files appear in the list. However, deleting the .mcf file deletes all associated files, with the exception of the .pack file. To delete the .pack file, go to step 3.

    UDF code files specified in response to the “Browse for UDF” File Open Dialog during the Export operation are also deleted.

    3 [Optional] To remove the .pack file during the delete operation, select the Delete Pack File check box.

    4 Click Delete.

    A confirmation message appears.

    5 Click Yes to remove the files.

    Note: During the Unpack and Delete File Operation, the user is prompted to confirm overwriting or deletion of the UDF code files. The UDF files are also displayed with the normal Teradata SET files, such as .mcf, .log, .ddl, etcetera.
