The Author's Submissions Files is the first step and the last step is the publications (or rejections) i.e. apprearing in a issue.
After these process I suppose that all the raw files (submissions files at fiest steps) may not be deleted from the directory. And after large numbers of submissions and no. of years it's became a big Garbage of these unwanted files.
Is it possible in future, give a command for JM to Delete (or Flushed) the these these unwanted files ( which not required any more in future) ?

We will likely not include a general option like that -- we like to see old files kept around as a 'paper trail' of sorts, and is key in replicating previous offline journal workflow processes (in a way, the current system acts similarly to a physical file drawer or archive, keeping even rejected articles for possible future needs). Space is normally not an issue these days (I have a bare-bones hosting plan for myself, which includes as much space as I need, forever, for example; plenty of service providers do this now). That isn't to say that you can't create your own tidying scripts though; and of course, we'll continue to look to have OxS behave in a space-conscious manner (see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3914
for an example).
