Delete unneded files in APDL

Is there an APDL command which does the same as "delete unneded files" in the analysis settings?

thanks to everyone

    Hi @BassaSelim3 ,

    When the Delete Unneeded Files property is set to Yes (default), the application automatically executes the Mechanical APDL command /FCLEAN. This command deletes all of the unneeded distributed files from the scratch directory when performing a distributed solution. This action eliminates the need to download potentially large distributed files, and as a result, completes your solution faster.
