Data storage

Please don't use the confocal computers or any other microscope computers as storage space for your data. You are responsible for the safe storage and backup of your data. Files may be deleted without warning if space is required.

At the end of each month data more than one month old will be deleted from all facility microscope computers, in rooms PUW 153, Main Building 310, 301 and 304.

Use several external hard drives for data storage. However, don't forget to buy two external hard drives. One for "daily" work and one for backup. A copy of your data onto a single external hard drive is not a backup, as we don't store the data for you!
