Data Downloads and Archiving

Data files are automatically stored on the computer workstations. For the FC-500, data is automatically stored as both raw data (listmode files with .LMD suffix) and a PDF of any "flowpage" layout created by the software. To prevent the hard drive from filling up, all raw data files should be downloaded by individual users within 6 months.  Files may be copied to USB flash drive (we will loan you ours), CD, DVD, or 3.5 inch diskettes (not provided). Users should download their files routinely, preferably after each use, to avoid possible data loss. The Facility manager will make every attempt to create a long-term backup copy of all data, however this cannot be guaranteed.

WARNING: Any data files remaining after more than 24 months on the computer workstations will be permanently deleted and may become unavailable.
