Hi Graham
Thanks for informing me about Metop Manager. I will print your email out and file it with  lots of paperwork involving this satellite hobby. When i try using pytroll for Metop images, that info i am sure will be useful.
I can see i will have much to learn, even some of the basics using and processing images, in pytroll. But at least i have a start, and now using what i have learnt so far, i can produce images using PyTroll/SatPy. And its no longer a complete mystery when it crops up in the msg forums. One of the reasons i took up this hobby is that all my life i have been very interested in meteorology, climate etc, and this is another outlet for that.

Good Morning Philip

There is an issue with David's Metop Manager in that there isnt an option to save the raw data to a specified location like there is in the MSG Data Manager and I dont think there ever will be

However if you  untick Delete Files from RX in the Metop Manager then it will continually reprocess all the files again and again - it doesnt seem to recognise which files have been processed for that day and which havent so it just does the whole lot over again

The solution I found is to set up a process that watches the EPS-10 directory and as soon as new files come in it copies them to a specified location. It does this before the Metop Manager processes them which means I can leave Delete Files from RX ticked . However for my solution it does involve extra software to monitor the EPS-10 directory

Its just something to be aware of if you decide to use pytroll for Metop images

It doesnt seem to be a problem with Himawari ,GOES16/17s as they do have an option to save the raw data

I dont know why the Metop Manager is different
