NE-CAT maintains two computers for data backup; one for each beamline. When you are done with your data collection it is recommended that you back up your data on a drive and take it with you. We will keep images backed up onsite for 6 months and processed data for approximately a year. To backup your data we recommend:
- Hard drive of sufficient size (if you are unsure, please contact your User Support)
- Recommended format should be ext3 with a USB2 connection
If you wish to rsync your data, a remote session can be created so that you may use the sync script. Otherwise, data transfer can only occur from NE-CAT to your home institution. Sessions cannot be made in reverse.
