If you're frequently mounting different CDs as volumes on the NetWare server, the SYS volume can get choked up with index files. These files are stored in a hidden directory named cdrom$$.rom on the SYS: volume, and they are not deleted by NetWare when the CD volume is dismounted.

The best way to delete these files is to run the CD PURGE command at the server console. However, make certain there aren't any CD volumes mounted when you run this command.
