File and Directory Operations Overview

Information on commonly used file / directory operations.

cd /path/to/where/link/is/required
ln -s _target_ _linkname_

Due to the 20 GB quota limit on home directories, all research data, scripts etc. should be stored in a BEAR project directory. However, some applications in BEAR Portal (such as JupyterLab) start in the home directory so for convenience we recommend creating symlinks from within your home directory to your project directories.

The method for doing this (for a single project directory) is as follows:

  1. Identify the Linux path for your project directory. (See info in the Linux RDS connection guide.)
  2. Execute the following command (replacing with the path from the above step, as appropriate):

    ln -s /rds/projects/p/path-to-project-dir "${HOME}"
