[LDM #KQV-820647]: LDM - Directory structure



Mike,

That's because it doesn't matter to what directory the tarball is 
downloaded.  By tradition (but for no other reason) we often
download the tarball to the LDM user's home directory.  In any
case, I always remove the tarball when I'm done.

I assume you mean "decoded" data (i.e., data-products that have
been filed or, otherwise, locally processed by the LDM's "pqact"
utility).

Conventionally, these products are filed under the "data" sub-
directory of the LDM user's home-directory.  Often, this
"directory" is a symbolic link to another directory on a disk
partition that is not backed-up.

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
