1. Data Collection :

A. All .fid files stored during collection should be placed in the /home/vnmr1 directory (ie /data500/vnmr1 or /data600/vnmr1). Data.fid files found in lower level directories (eg. vnmrsys/*) will be moved to the /data500/vnmr1 or /data600/vnmr1 and will be deleted from the lower level directories.

B. All .fid files must be backed up onto MO disks or magnetic tape within 1-2 days of collection. MO disks should be backed up onto magnetic tapes every 4-6 weeks. These backups are the responsibility of the user.

C. All .fid files collected by the user should be deleted from the vnmr1 home directory by that user within 3 days of data collection.

D. All .fid files in the vnmr1 home directory will be automatically deleted by the system after ~7 days.
