Moving archived data from ARCHER to tape

Hi HelpDesk?,

I need to move my HadGEM3 model experiments, currently archived on ARCHER (/nerc/n02/n02/tcowan/archive/), to tape before ARCHER is decommissioned. My former colleague, Simon Tett, informed me to contact the NCAS HelpDesk? as he is going through this process. Also, what is the process of getting the data back off tape if need be (i.e., I'm currently revising a paper and I don't know if I'll need particular model fields)? Is there a way to access Simon's runs that are currently being "archived" on tape (formally was kept on ARCHER at /nerc/n02/n02/stett2/archive/)?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Hi Tim,

Regarding archiving your data, could you send me an email at j.j.abram@…. I can give you a set of instructions from there for where to move your data.

Simons file's are currently in the process of being archived to tape which means they are locked to prevent them being altered during transfer. I'm afraid until that is complete, I'm not able to grant access to them. As soon as they are finished I will contact Simon with instructions of how to retrieve them.

Kind Regards,
