I’d previously attempted to archive this data set on multiple occasions, across multiple days, but network dropouts kept killing my connection to the server (Owl) and, in turn, interrupting the tarball operation.
Today, I came in to a successful creation of the tarball of this PacBio data set (it only took 10hrs)! And, it’s a big file: 162GB!! Remember, that’s the compressed size!
Now, we’ll have to decide where we want to keep the tarball. I guess this’ll be part of our next data management plan discussions.
