Data handling

Raw data storage

The raw data (i.e. .cbf and .img - files) from the beamline, will be stored within your px-home directory.

The maximum data storage duration for raw data files will be 2 workdays after finishing your experiment. After that, it will be deleted automatically!

Data backup 

We highly recommend to store your data on USB hard drives on site, using one of our backup-computers with powered USB hubs and the backup script.

USB hard drives should be formatted with NTFS. For other formats, we can not guarantee that the data backup  works properly.

Please note: backup media will not be provided by BESSY-MX!

Alternatively, you can transfer your data via sftp. As this depends much on your network bandwidth, it may take significant longer than the backup on disk.

Outbound connections are possible from computers hkl5-8 from where you can connect to your home system and save your data there.

Inbound connections are restricted. The inbound connection is possible only via ssh to the IP-adress: 193.149.11.251 by using PX accounts.
