I encountered a problem when downloading my dataset ( 452 GB) from
as the local installation crashed . How can I retrieve my results for
Could you kindly tell me where are such processed files kept in the
installed folder locally ?
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
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
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
how customized this is in your local install, but the paths will be
to be relative to where you have Galaxy installed, possibly just as
# -- 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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org would
be a good choice, to better reach the development community.
