There's probably an easier way, but the hacker in me used to do this on
TOPS-10 6.0 and up, because of subdirectory support (IIRC). Earlier than
6, it was just *,*
First two *'s are P,Pn, the next 5 are up to 5 nested subdirectories. Of
course, wildcards can be used on the filename.ext, but not leading *'s.
SYSSTAT will list "System File Structures". Use those as the <structure>
above for an exhaustive search. I'm not sure DIRECT can search multiple
structures, I think if you did DSKB:,DSKC:[*,*] it would only search
DSKC: for [*,*]. For DSKB, it would only show your current P,Pn on that
structure. (Unless you used SETSRC to change the search path... I think).
As for why it's trying to continually back up AVAIL.SYS, nothing comes

So I have a very vanilla TOPS-10 system running.
The console is being spammed with:
[DAEMON: %AVAIL.A77 already used, can't rename AVAIL.SYS]
Somewhere, evidently, there's a directory of files that are backups of
AVAIL.SYS, and it needs cleaning out. How do I find that directory?
