I would like to set the folder in which MinKNOW writes the raw data. How can I do this? I do not currently know where MinKNOW will output my data. What is the default directory where MinKNOW outputs the data? My OS is Mac OS X.
I found a page explaining where this is set up in a
user_conf file here:
Open Notepad with administrative rights (search for notepad, right click and then select run as administrator). Select open file and navigate to C:\ProgramFiles\OxfordNanopore\MinKNOW\conf and then open user_conf to view the script. Under output_dirs change the two instances of "C:\data" (default read location) to the directory required. Please note the "\" is important.
Go to /Applications/MinKNOW.app/Contents/Resources/conf/user_conf and open user_conf to view the script. Under output_dirs replace the default path "/Library/MinKNOW/data" with your path of choice.
Go to /opt/ONT/MinKNOW/conf and open user_conf to view the script. Under output_dirs replace the default path "/var/lib/MinKNOW/data/reads" with your path of choice.
