Best practice: Organize files for efficiency

May 29, 2019

Keeping your files organized in a system like GLADE can greatly simplify your life and save you lots of time and trouble. Say you have 20 TB of Mount Pinatubo volcanic aerosols data. Keep those files in a subdirectory such as /glade/u/home/$USER/pinatubo rather than scattered among unrelated files or in multiple directories. Specialized trees are easier to share with other users and to transfer to other users or projects as necessary.
