Hi Bob -

I had already checked the folders for 'alien' files - nothing. I have upload the file list: SEVIRI_15min_list.

cheers, HP

Hi HP,

Thanks for the file listing, things look to be correct from what I can tell.

I'm curious if somehow things are being unzipped differently for us. Would you mind trying the following:

  1. Create a new directory.
  2. In a Terminal window, cd to the new directory.
  3. Grab the unzipped version of the data that I put on ftp. Here are instructions:
    ftp ftp.ssec.wisc.edu
    user: anonymous
    password: email
    bin
    prom
    cd pub/ssec/hp
    mget *
    bye
  4. Create a new local dataset pointing to this new directory and give it a try.

By chance, does this give you any better results?

Thanks again,
Bob
