    Deleting a file is no matter, as you are working in a Unix & hope you know the command, but how did you get this file. Is it related to other program / software. If you deleted it, the software / application may not run. Are you an administrator. If yes, you are more responsible about your server. If this is an experimental and no other backups are there, you can.

    Thank you for the response.

    Yes, I'm the administrator, and my server is running out of space. That's way I decided to ex cute a command to show the files occupies larger space and one of them are .gnt files.

    This type of file is associated with cobol programming language. Probably there is a package based on the same. It is up to you to decide if the package is no longer use. For more details, please navigate here: https://supportline.microfocus.com/Documentation/books/oc41books/cypack.htm.

    From what I remember, a GNT file is a Generated Executeable Code file. Deleting may cause some jobs to no longer run.
