I think it might make sense to also clear this directory when the backend is created, in case
something crashed and the backend never reached {{dispose()}}. At least for previous runs
of the same job, we can know what to delete on restart. 
> In general, it is very important for this backend to clean up the local FS, because the
local quota might be very limited compared to the DFS. And a node that runs out of local disk
space can bring down the whole job, with no way to recover (it might always get rescheduled
to that node).
