Issue/Introduction

BS2000-Agent does not remove Task File Table links from binary File Transfer Jobs:

The Agent creates a TFT (Task File Table) at BS2000, to allow the BS2000 Agent access to a file for a File Transfer.
Therefore generic Link-Names are used,unfortunately these entries aren't removed after a successful transfer and needs to be manually purged afterwards.

Example of links:
:GRU2:$ADR.C.RP.ADR-818.H60 LDJOMYEY
:GRU2:$ADR.C.RP.ADR-819.H60 LDXRQLWI
