Dear Galaxy, I encountered a problem when downloading my dataset ( 452 GB) from Galaxy as the local installation crashed . How can I retrieve my results for the experiments ? Could you kindly tell me where are such processed files kept in the installed folder locally ? warm regards, Amit

Hello Amit, Sorry to hear that you are having trouble. Were you trying to download through a browser (by clicking on the disc icon)? That might cause a problem on a personal computer - not necessarily a Galaxy problem but in general, probably with the browser (but a restart should be possible). For data of this size, using a command line tool such as 'curl' would be needed to extract the data. To do this, right click on the disc icon, 'copy link location', then use curl at a terminal prompt, like this: % curl -O '<paste_url_here>' To just locate data, examine your universe_wsgi.ini file. I am not sure how customized this is in your local install, but the paths will be set to be relative to where you have Galaxy installed, possibly just as defaults: # -- Files and directories < other content > # Dataset files are stored in this directory. #file_path = database/files The files will be named in a way that will make it difficult to map to the history/datasets that they belong to without making a query against the database, which means Galaxy has to be up. So, ideally you would restart Galaxy and use the curl option to extract the data from the database itself to keep this simple. If you need help with your local install to solve a problem that you think contributed to the crash, posting to would be a good choice, to better reach the development community. Best, Jen Galaxy team -- Jennifer Jackson
