How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Retry mechanism when deleting packages

When a package is deleted from the console, the packages/apps are removed from the database. If for any reason a pull DP or DP is not available, or WMI has issues on those remotes site systems, the files on the remote SCCM content Lib are not removed. This creates orphaned files on the Content Lib and causes storage issues on the servers.
We are working with a customer that as a large number of PullDP's so we would like to suggest on the behalf of our customer, to have a retry mechanism in the console to delete the content from the PullDP/DP when they are available and/or the WMI issues are fixed.
This could help to minimize orphaned files and prevent storage issues in the customers DPs/PullDPs.

        That would be absolutely great. Don't even know that SCCM is going to create orphaned files when a server is offline.
