We have an open lab data processing platform and would like to store the data directly into one drive instead of the D drive in the computer. Just wondering if anyone has successfully done this? Thank you!
From what I remember, OpenLab CDS 2 only supports saving data files locally - whether OneDrive counts as a network drive I don't know. OpenLab ChemStation will let you save to a network drive.
Regardless of what you're using, it might be easier to setup a script to automatically copy files from your D:\ drive to OneDrive. There is a command line tool within Windows called Robocopy (robocopy | Microsoft Docs). You could write a simple batch file with the appropriate commands, then use task scheduler to get it to run at (say) 2 am every day. The instructions on this page are a good starting point, they're for Windows 7 but it also works for Windows 10.
There are also third party backup programs that will do the same sort of thing, I've used Cobian Backup in the past but this software is no longer under development.
i once had nearly the same question (with ownlcoud & Masshunter) & 'tried' with a drive letter: directly into the cloud.From the Agilent SW point of view it worked, but our IT was not amused: every 1-2 seconds a new tiny upload to the cloud took place (temp.data file) & generated too much traffic.
So cpevans suggestion is the best: "a post run copy function" for Openlab.For LC & GC Masshunter there would be a NAS copy function.
I have a related following up question. If I set up a script to automatically copy files from local C drive to a network drive, how do I know data acquisition for the particular data folder has been completed? Or does it matter? Thanks!
