Hi @wtempel, thanks for the help. For the specific test case I was investigating I did not “dereference” my exported job, but the original data was still live on my storage space. I think I wasn’t totally clear in my original post, here is what I noticed in more detail.
The original topaz job was in:
The cryosparc output directory for my current project is:
But Topaz preprocess does not write to my new project directory:
Starting micrograph preprocessing by running command /home/ec2-user/anaconda3/envs/topaz/bin/topaz preprocess --scale 4 --niters 200 --num-workers 8 -o /fsx/old/P33/J86/preprocessed
Topaz extract does write to the correct directory though:
Starting extraction by running command /home/ec2-user/anaconda3/envs/topaz/bin/topaz extract --radius 16 --threshold -6 --up-scale 4 --assignment-radius -1 --min-radius 5 --max-radius 100 --step-radius 5 --num-workers 8 --device 0 --model /fsx/new/P45/import/P33_J86_topaz_train/P33_J86_topaz_model/J86/models/model_epoch10.sav -o /fsx/new/P45/J6/topaz_particles_prediction.txt
I hope that is more clear. Based on these results, I’m not sure if “dereferencing” would make a difference.
