What is the purpose of the QRECOVERY library?

I am aware the library is used to house the QDBJRN journal and associated receivers. Also posts on your Web site say that SQL sessions are saved there as well. The library also contains several other objects (there were created by my user profile) that appear to be *usrspc objects from failed cpyfrmimpf commands and a QQQADM object. Can objects created there by non-IBM user profiles be cleaned up?

QRECOVERY is used for system journaling as well as holding objects from failing processes. You can use your discretion to delete those objects that are not IBM objects or IBM user created objects. It is possible that there are objects created in this library that are used by programs, which when deleted could cause those programs to fail.
