I'm quitting my first job and when researching how to do it legally correct (Germany) I read that it's a good practice to remove all personal traces.
Obviously you should take things like stuff on your desk, but I also have some "personal" files on my account. Most notably a bunch of code that I wrote to enhance my own productivity. I'm not hired as a coder (I'm an artist), but I had a few scripting tasks nontheless. I'm talking about my own stuff though. Should I get rid of those?
If so, I have noticed that deleting things isn't easy on our PCs because the server sync doesn't work correctly and generally restores all files after a reboot - so I was wondering if it makes sense to ask our admin to wipe my profile. Would this even be allowed? Is it unprofessional?
Another reason why a wipe would be useful is that we have storage problems and my profile is pretty huge, having the whole Anaconda suite installed locally.
