Introduction:

I used Chorus to do some maint for a new product, and finished with a "Clean up and Hide." The CASC file was deleted, but not two temp areas:

OMVS.TSYS.CAI.MSMSERV.T51
OMVS.TSYS.CAI.MSMSERV.T51.DATA
OMVS.TSYS.CAI.MSMSERV.T52
OMVS.TSYS.CAI.MSMSERV.T52.DATA

Is there are way to remove them? We are very limited on zFS space.
