I think some version of ndpd used to write out the drift file
when it exited. (Maybe I'm dreaming and that was just a
suggestion for purposes of discussion.)
So I would do
delete the drift file
Then you know it got deleted.
An alternative would be
delete drift file
check to make sure drift file is not there
