Experiment deleted by accident from the UMUI

Reported by: portega Owned by: ros
Component: UMUI Keywords:

I've deleted by accident the experiment xnft and all the jobs it contained.

Is it possible to recover it? If there is a backup, any version from last week will be fine.

Many thanks in advance

Hi Pablo,

I've retrieved the database files from backup. I've put them under ~ros/temp/xnft on PUMA. Since you've deleted the experiment you will need to recreate them under a new experiment id. Please copy the files to your own directory. You will then need to unzip all the basis files (.gz), create a new experiment and jobs in the UMUI and then import each of the basis files manually. The .job files tell you what description you'd set previously for each job.

Hi Ros,

Many thanks for retrieving the backup files.

I've already copied the files into my directory, so you can delete them from yours.

Hi again Ros,

I had a final question. Is it possible to recover as well the history files of the different jobs? I'd like to check the initial conditions that I first used

Thanks in advance,

Hi Pablo,

The job history files live in your ~/umui_jobs/job_hist directory and weren't deleted.
