Data storage rules: 

  • C: drive. Large data files must not be saved on C:. Please check especially your Downloads and Desktop folder and move large data files to a different location or delete them. Then also empty your trahs bin. You can of course keep small files like analysis scripts and macros in your Documents folder.
  • RAID/D: drive. The storage at the RAID is meant for data that is currently being analyzed. Please check if you have stored old data there, which you no longer actively analyse.
  • As permanent storage you can use your own server or a network share of the Uni Münster Cloud. You can find a manual how to transfer data from the HIVE to your server or Cloud here: . In case you need access to the Cloud network share, please contact us.
