I try to add hints where possible and appropriate. If you hover the mouse
over the 'Delete Channel 1 data' it says:
Check to delete non-AVHRR channel-1 received files
so if there no other data you want from Channel-1 check that box. It
applies to the non-image files.
Thanks for further advice.
Firstly I've 'itemised' all bas channels now and sent them to specific folders so I can see what services data is coming from what channel - and where it is.
And as you said earlier, good practice not to send everything to 'default.'
I did tick Delete Channel-1 in AVHRR files options but it didn't delete the non imaging files in the EUMETSAT_Data_Channel_1 folder which just keep building up.
However, I was looking at Metop-A Manager setup today and saw all the 'sounding' and non imaging - VIS/IR tabs and, as Metop Manager was already receiving and processing files from different data paths - Metop AVHRR and NOAA GAC, I wondered if it would also take and process all those unwanted files in EUMETSAT Data Channel 1 - OK hold them processed for a day - and sort out my problem.
I was very pleased to see, I can tell you, that this happened
There are still some Metop-b and NOAA 18 hirs files lingering but the script along the bottom of the programme window shows 'sounding files' being processed regularly.
I just need to deal with the EUMETSAT-darmstadt files now.
What a clever programme to deal with three different data paths.
Sorry if you, or anyone else suggested this earlier - I've not been thinking straight recently.
Having said that, I would suggest keeping as much as possible away from
