  • GAIIx with D drive too small after SCS 2.6 upgrade

    We have an older GA that was upgraded to GAIIx and is now running SCS 2.6. The D drive is 930G -- the problem is we're running a 120X120 and the D drive is filling up faster than the images can be copied off & deleted.

    I've already gone in & deleted all the old run information -- I've manually deleted all the images that have copied off - we're still having issues with multiple stops & starts.

    The D:/Run_XXX/Processed folder is taking up half the disk -- inside is a folder for each cycle and the modified dates show the older cycles haven't been altered in days -- I've asked tech support if it's safe to delete those older folders to free up space, but three e-mails Illumina still has not addressed my question. Does anyone know if it's safe to delete the older cycles in this folder?

    Have any of you had similar issues with D drive space on older GAs? Has Illumina allowed you to upgrade the instrument computer or install a bigger drive?

    Hate to think we have to stop offering the longer reads because we upgraded.

    Hi.

    Yes, you can upgrade the instrument. It's covered by a Dell warranty, not Illumina warranty (transparently, though, I guess... Illumina will just contact Dell for repairs). Dell is happy for you to upgrade the drives either by buying drives from Dell, or buying your own. If you buy your own, then they will cover the warranty on all parts of the system other than the drives, and if you buy Dell drives, then they will have their own Dell warranty anyway. We are looking at doing this in the near future.

    Cheers,

    Scott.

      This is a know issue (known by the community anyway). It was discussed previously in this thread.

      Basically the older computers (shipped with the original GA models) can not keep pace with the volume of data and the amount of processing required with the new version 4 kits and RTA 1.6. It seems that RTA is so overwhelmed that it gives a lower priority to deleting images it no longer needs. Eventually the disk fills and the run pauses until RTA can catch up.

        Thanks for the input, and the link -- I couldn't find that thread yesterday.

        I will definitely keep pursuing upgrading the computer, we've asked before and never got a straight answer, just have to keep pursuing it until we can get a Hi-Seq I guess. Maybe that's their new sales strategy.....

          I was given this information by our FAS, and Dell.

            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
            by seqadmin




            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

            Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
            by seqadmin


            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
