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.

    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.

    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.
