I'm currently crunching Data which reflects a Reporting "Deadline" of Jan. 7, 2010.

As this time frame as obviously passed, should I continue the Work or simply suspend or delete the file?

Any thoughts Friends?

Have a Pleasant and Productive Day!

Since you have past the deadline, a copy was sent to another account. As long as you can finish that workunit before they do, you'll still get credit for it (even after the deadline). If not, then it will be a waste of processing power and you should just abort it.

The WU in question hasn't passed it's expiration date. You still have a bit more time before it goes over. It looks like you can finish that WU in the next 11 hours so you will most likely finish before a 3rd person gets the WU
