SBC staff recommend that you organize your data into sub-directories as you collect and process data at SBC.
In addition, we HIGHLY recommend that you backup ALL of the data from your SBC HOME DIRECTORY ($HOME) to a single disk or storage system. Plan on needing to backup as much as 250GB of data per day of scheduled beam time.
If you must backup to separate disks, you should realize that the size (free space) of your backup disks could influence how you should organize data collection and data processing. It will simplify the data backup process if you create sub-directories under $HOME (for example, DATA1 and DATA2) that correspond to the separate backup disks that you intend to use, and then limit the amount of data that you place in each sub-directory to the available space on the corresponding backup disk.
