Project import is failing

Dear All,
we are transfereing our file system - I have copied over my project but when I try and import I get the following error:

Unable to import project from /beegfs/scratchfs/mccarthy_cryosparc_grp/mbowler/P98: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)

The project directories are imported from the json files but otherwise nothing is there. Any help appreciated! Best wishes, Matt

Dear Matt,

could you first of all post the content of P98 folder and maybe few job subfolders like J10 and so on, produced by ls command. Are you sure that everything was copied? Did you use rsync for instance, and with which parameter?


Hi Vladimir,
thanks for the reply - yes I used rsync (rsync -rtv P98 /nfs/emblem/mccarthy_cryosparc_grp/mbowler/P98) below is the result of the ls:

I was wondering if problem could be in symbolic links. You haven’t used option rsync -l, to copy symbolyc links. Check the page here:

So I recopied with symbolic links and still get the same error - I looked at the instructions in the tutorial but will have to get theh sys admin people to do it I suspect as I do not have permissions needed. Many thanks for your help.

The only other thing which may help, is to look at your project.json file. I am not sure if changing the path to project there will help? Are you migrating project from the same cryosparc version?
