Dear Data-Miners,

I working on a clsuter process to identify if a product belongs to a cluster or to another. While the process is running, it creates one model per cluster-basket and save it in a seperate folder "cluster models". Normaly it overwrite the old models if I run the process again. But often I try other basket-counts and when i change it e.g. from 100 to 50 it just overwirte the first 50 models. When the next process iterate over the "cluster models"-folder, it find the old models (51-100) too and try to predict with them.

So I want to clean up the folder in my repository by a process before it creats the new models. I thought it would be easy to do so, but its dosnt work.

My process just delete one file per run (or nothing) and the RMiner sometimes throw an exception. Maybe you can help me ;)

    Use Delete Repository Entry instead of Delete File.
    When deleting the complete folder, you could even remove the Loop operator.

    Okay, but i can't find the "Create Folder"-Element because I need the folder for the new models...

    You are right, that's still missing. But if you save a model in  a non-existing repository folder with the Store operator, the folder will be created.
