In order to download your data you need a UNF account. You also need to know your group.
You have two different ways to get your MRI data:
- Use a terminal (Linux, Mac)
- Use a SFTP client (Windows, Mac, Linux)
Using the terminal (Mac, Linux, Windows advanced users)
Open a terminal and use the ssh command to get your MRI data into a tar.gz archive. Don’t forget to use your own unf_login and change the path to your data and the destination.
