I am taking the Coursera course "Genomic Data Science with Galaxy." I noticed from the beginning that there was a problem with the current history being loaded and instead whenever I refresh the History Toolbar on the right side of the main home screen in Galaxy, a new Unnamed History appears. Sometimes if I select User > Saved Histories and then view the History I want to be working with in the center panel of the main home screen in Galaxy and then click on the Switch to this history button, the History I want to be working with will be loaded into the right hand History Toolbar. At the moment, however, this is not working and when I view All Saved Histories, it says the Current History is the one I want to be working with and has the datasets listed that I have pulled in from UCSC Main, but when I click on Done, Unnamed History loads. When I repeat the above process of going through User > Saved Histories and then view the History I want to be working with in the center panel of the main home screen in Galaxy and then click on the Switch to this history button, the History I want to be working with IS being loaded into the right hand History Toolbar but the datasets are not there and a message that the History is empty is there instead.
Previously, I had almost gotten through the entire set of Video Lectures but the datasets that I tried to put with their respective histories kept getting crossed up with other histories making it next to impossible to use the left hand Tools for analysis since I couldn't load the correct History to save my life and I finally ended up DELETING everything with the hopes that I could just start fresh today.
Please help, I am beyond frustrated and would really like to be able to keep my Histories with their respective datasets separate for most efficient analysis and storage.
Thank you for your time.
