iSee Manage Save Files

Back to Package

Save files are an important object on our IBM i. They serve as the IBM i version of Zip files.  It’s a way to scoop up objects (including their security attributes!) put them into a container where you can restore them some place else at a later time. While that is all well and good, I think many of us don’t really have an appreciation for how many save files we have out on a system ?  How Large are they ? Did they come from this system ? or someplace else ? So many great questions that we can ask about the management of these files. This iSee will cover both the basics, as well as a deep dive on learning the inner details of these hidden mysteries.
