It's really not going to be possible to answer this question
without a lot of additional information: such as, how large
were the files, were they all in one directory, did they
all have similar names, how was the disk set up, and
most important of all, what else was the system being used
for at the time? Also, what model of 3100 is it, how much
memory do you have, and how much is free / what software
Assuming that the system was tuned properly, that it was
operating properly, that there was not a lot of other
activity on the system at the time, and that there was
nothing 'wrong' with the directory structure or file
names: then the most likely cause is that they were
very large files and you have the disk set for erase
on delete. This is going to take a while, especially
on a low-end VAX 3100, as it uses a fair amount of CPU.
But there are a LOT of 'ifs' in this guess.
