With his NFFA credentials, every user has automated access to NFFA Datashare, a file share and collaboration platform hosted on a local server at CNR-IOM, under its custody. This instrument offers NFFA-Trieste users a secure mean of data storage and retrieval and gives the possibility to access and process scientific data, collaborating in real time with other team members.
*WARNING: Synchronization and backup are two different things. As long as a folder is synchronized to NFFA Datashare, it is accessible both from your PC and from datashare.nffa.eu. If you delete a file from the folder in your PC, it will be automatically deleted also from the synchronized folder in NFFA Datashare. Vice versa, if you delete a file from the folder in NFFA Datashare, it will be automatically deleted also from the synchronized folder in your PC.
NFFA-Trieste follows good practices to retain files of all the research data produced. The user has the ultimate control on his/her data and can access it or take it out at any time.
