We now have a notification method that users can configure and maintain if you want notifications for files that will be removed within 7 days.

Simply add a single email address to this file: /scratch/$USER/.notify-email

The email you will receive will provide instructions as to where the files are located. You will only receive emails if there are files that will be deleted within 7 days. You will continue to receive emails daily as long as there are files or directories that have not be used in over 21 days.

If you have any questions contact with the subject /scratch purge notification.
