Hi, 

I am trying to use "prefetch" to download sra data. But I found the default output folder is /home/[USER]/ncbi/public/sra/, which is not big enough. I check the mannual file for sra-toolkit, but didn't find a option to set the output directory. Can anyone tell me how to change the default fold of the downloading for prefetch ? Thanks a lot.

 

Best,

Michael

Set the vdb-config as the way I mentioned.

1, come to bin directory, such as: /home/sratoolkit.2.5.5-centos_linux64/bin 
2, run it in the terminal:    ./vdb-config -i
3, change the fold of Workspace Name to a big harddisk.
4, by the way, use Tab to move

Re-run fastq-dump, the cache files will come to new setted directory.

See this install and config guide: there is a tools called ./vdb-config to configure sra-tools.
