The method you tried "uploads" the file from your computer back to
itself - making a copy as it goes with lots of overhead. You should
probably consider the procedure here which allows you to avoid
even making a copy on disk but point at the existing files already
on the server:



Hi Peter,

I have followed the link you provided and selected the option "Upload directory of files".
Now my NGS data are in the library, and I am wondering how I can feed them to FASTQ Groomer?
