In April 2021 the RDM team of UGent organises a series of 3 sessions on data storage. The first one focuses on the Project Shares, a storage platform provided by DICT. Two other sessions cover version control, each on a different platform; GitHub and Sharepoint/Onedrive. The number of participants is restricted, so please register through the links below to receive the MsTeams meeting details.

 

  1. Working with the project shares – April 19, 2021 at 11.00-11.30

In this session, we will showcase the Project Shares, a storage-platform provided by DICT (UGent) and suitable for the secure storage and archiving of research data.

After a quick introduction, we will show you where you can request such a Share, share it with collaborators, mount it to your computer, effectively use it in your daily routine, but also how to recover data that was unintendedly altered/deleted.

Additionally, we will talk about backups and how to manage these effectively.

  1. Version control in Sharepoint/Onedrive FB – April 22, 2021 at 11.00-11.30

When you work with different versions of a file, it can be a challenge to locate the ‘correct’ version or to know how versions differ from each other. If not done well, it can even be difficult to know which file preceded the other.

The matter is even complicated further when files are kept in multiple locations, and multiple users edit these files. To avoid confusion and safeguard against accidental loss, a versioning system can be put in place.

Do you want to track the history of your research, facilitate collaboration or review, write papers and reports efficiently, get credits for you work and ensure continuity of your work?

Join this session in which we will demonstrate the use of automatic version control with Sharepoint and OneDrive for Business.
