I made some calculations in the SageMath notebook and got a message "WARNING: Output truncated! " with a link to "full_output.txt".

Then, I made some changes and ran the same calculation again. I got a similar message, but when I clicked the link, I saw the old full_output.txt file - without my changes.

How can I tell SageMath notebook to stop caching the file and create a fresh file?

If full_output.txt is used to get info from Sage on a regular basic then I would suggest considering some sharing technology. The particular type of sharing software would depend on where is your sage server is installed. See for example: Sage Appliance and sharing-files-between-sage-and-windows. Alternatively you can install additional software to expose a part of server's file system: * Use Apache or ngix with automatic indexing to target a particular directory; and then you would only need to write your file to that shared directory. * Use NFS/SMB * Use sshfs

This is . Note that

This has usually been considered a browser "feature" and not a Sage/sagenb issue

so it may not be 'fixed' very soon, if ever. But reloading should get you what you want.

This problem has already made me bitch a few times until I found a solution: I copy the script to a new cell, make the modifications and there I get a new "full_output.txt file" which takes into account my modifications. One response says: "But reloading should get you what you want." I have found that this is not true! the old "full_output.txt file" is still present. (sorry for my bad english, i use google translator)
