I have been trying all day to access different SRA files on the GEO database but keep being met with '404' kind of error- stating that the site is down. I have tried on two separate computers and get the same result... taking the following path as an example:
The above path only exists as far as ftp://ftp-trace.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra/sra-instant/reads/ByStudy/sra/
i.e. there is no 'SRX' directory....
Is it normal for all SRA files on the GEO database to be (temporarily?) inaccessible? If so how long does this tend to last?
