i am trying to download authorized dbGAP data. My PI gave me the .ngc key and the necessary kart file. I used this as a guide to configure vdb-config: https://github.com/ncbi/sra-tools/wiki/05.-Toolkit-Configuration
I then tried to use prefetch to download the data: /path/to/sratool/bin/prefetch --ngc /path/to/ngcfile/.ngc /path/to/kartfile/.kart -O ./ -X 800g
However, i get the as an output the following message repeatdly:
"Current preference is set to retrieve SRA Normalized Format files with full base quality scores".
This just keeps going and going, without any data being downloaded.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
