Disk Cleanup & Faster Data Transfers

Our transfer disks have been averaging 90% full. Occasionally, it has been so full that processing of new data orders has to be halted until there is more space.

In the interest of keeping your data requests flowing, we ask that you purge your data to free up disk space after you have downloaded it. Just click on the 'Purge request' button to let us know you are done.

Click on 'Purge request' after you download your data.
Please request data in chunks that you can reasonably download in the default 5 day expiration limit.

Users experience faster data transfer speeds using globus.

A few RDA users work in regions where internet speeds are especially slow. Just let us know and we can extend the 5 day expiration limit for you.  Also, consider having data shipped out to you on a hard drive.
