For some reason, PTF save files are not getting deleted on a consistant basis after being applied. Working with IBM, I was told that providing and ONLY providing the corresponding PTF is permanently (or superseded)applied can the save file be deleted. To find if you have these on your system, WRKOBJ *ALL/QSF* *FILE and WRKOBJ *ALL/QMF* *FILE. You'll save storage and won't be taking the extra time during backups.
