Data Management Policies

  • External portable data storage devices are not allowed in the Core Facility. For networked instruments, please transfer your data to the MSU Spartan Drive.
  • The data generated on any instrument will remain on the acquisition computer for a minimum of 1 month. Data older than 1 month may be deleted from the local hard drive.
  • Generally, data generated on all Core Facility instruments are backed up by the Core staff. Data files transferred to the Core’s server will be maintained for a minimum of 1 year after the date of creation. Data older than 1 year may be deleted.

Please note that raw data preservation is ultimately the responsibility of the user and is not the responsibility of the Core Facility.
