Data Access

Data and images can be copied directly from the Analysis computers (in the computing suite) or from instrument support PCs at Adelaide Microscopy to a USB Disk / Portable Hard Drive. We recommend that you copy your data after each session.

Cloud storage and sharing services such as Box and CloudStor can be used on some internet connected instrument PCs to upload your data, which can then downloaded or viewed on your own device. Please see Adelaide Microscopy staff or email Ken for details.

For University of Adelaide staff and students on the North Tce campus it is possible to use your university computer to directly access files saved at Adelaide Microscopy via the network. Please see Adelaide Microscopy staff or email Ken for details.

Data backup - Data for all instruments is backed up once a week and permanently backed up once a month. It is then removed from all AM computers and the network.

Lost your data? Need to retrieve old data? Please send an email to Ken or Adelaide Microscopy or phone 8313 5855.

For most instruments, old data can be retrieved quickly from our archives. Retrieving old Skyscan data and other large datasets may take several working days if more than a month has elapsed since it was saved.
