I don't seem to have edit access to https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12-__RqTqQxuxHNOln3H5ciVztsDMJcZ2SVs1BrfqYCc/edit#gid=0, or I'd claim it there. <shrug> Gonna start spidering shortly.

    Copying to azi02 /home/jan/local_data/podaac.jpl but not really dealing with the symlinks Scott warned about. Still ...

    Scott Maxwell marsroverdriver@gmail.com 24 Apr to Sakari, John Well, what I was downloading there was PODAAC. I hadn't finished when I checked last.

    If we're at capacity without that data, maybe the best thing to do is to give up on it: it's clearly a larger data set than I thought when I started attempting to back it up (I was told to expect ~ 100 GB), and maybe it would just run us out of room if we ever did finish.

    Sakari 24 Apr to John, Scott John, do we have another copy of PODAAC?

    The ~6T Scott got seems good quality -- it's some an FTP site, but it's probably incomplete because the job had run out of space.

    It looks like this:

    We can either package it as is and publish without knowing how complete it is, or we can drop the whole thing.

    If we know someone else has a complete copy, then we might as well drop ours.

    If there is no other guidance I will delete it after a few weeks.

    Sounds good to me, Sakari. Can you update the ticket when you do? Or shall I? I hope to make another round at updating tickets before the end of the weekend.  - Jan

    PODAAC was never completed, and the partial work is lost, now that azi02 has been shut down. This was a prudent economic choice, in my opinion. Too bad, but not right to spend money in the hope someone will be able to get to it.
