Message: Hi

Once I've unzipped the quarterly CPU files and applied them successfully, can I remove the now-unzipped files to clear up a bit?

For instance, April's CPU has the 27726471 directory. Can I remove it once it's been applied to the database, or is this directory now an integral part of the database and should be kept forever?

Also, the .patch_storage directory is nearly 3gb and the 'opatch util cleanup' command says it worked, but didn't actually clear anything up. Is this any use in reality?

Thanks for advice

Dan

".patch_storage" is necessary if one day you have to remove the patch.
