.dat file in /home/ubuntu/galaxy/database/files/000/

Hello, Yesterday I generated a .bam file using a local galaxy instance. It was viewable from history. This morning I can only see the file (.dat file) from /home/ubuntu/galaxy/database/files/000/dataset_1.dat.

How do I “restore” this file to my Galaxy UI history ? Should I download the .dat file and re-upload into History? Since the filesize is about 18 GB I really want to use the most efficient method for its restore.

Please let me know whether I should include any additional information. There were no error messages or messages of any kind.

Thank you!

Have you been logged in to your user account when generating the dataset yesterday, and are you still logged in today?

Thanks for your quick reply. Yes, I was logged into my account yesterday while generating the dataset. I could see it in my history while still logged into galaxy. Yesterday evening I logged out and this morning I logged back into galaxy and could not locate my dataset in history.

I will no longer logout of galaxy in the evening. Can I retrieve the .dat file from disk and re-load it into my history ?

Sure, that will work though it’s not fixing the underlying issue, and you should definitely be able to log out of your account without losing access to data.

Thanks again! I will try to upload the .dat file back into history.


Just double checking: what do you see when you click on the “view all histories” button (in the top right hand corner)

Thanks for double checking. When I select the “View all histories” icon I unfortunately do not see my dataset.

Yesterday I remembered that I was not able to download this dataset from file…I am using localhost:8080.

but do you see more than one history?
