I was just doing something with Subject01.ds and noticed that it includes a SAM subdirectory. That should be removed, also for the other subjects. Subsequently the data should be re-zipped.

I was able to update the zip files ( in fieldtrip/data/ftp/tutorial but I do not have permission to remove the SAM directories from Subject0X.ds in fieldtrip/data. Jan-Mathijs, I assume you have rights to remove stuff from fieldtrip/data? Could you perhaps remove the directories (for your convenience you can just copy/paste & run the following code)? rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject01.ds/hz.ds rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject02.ds/hz.ds rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject03.ds/hz.ds rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject04.ds/hz.ds rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject01.ds/hz2.ds rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject02.ds/hz2.ds rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject03.ds/hz2.ds rm -rf /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data/Subject04.ds/hz2.ds

Hi Jim, I think we should leave in the hz.ds folders. These are related to the head localization before and after the measurement. They are not used but also don't take up a lot of space.

Jim Herring - 2013-05-01 17:04:55 +0200

So what exactly are the SAM folders? Only the hz2 folders?

Robert Oostenveld - 2013-05-01 22:39:00 +0200

(In reply to comment #3) the SAM folders are some remnants of a SAM beamformer analysis that was perfomed on this data using the CTF software. So they do not contain the original data, but some (probably failed) analysis results.

Jan-Mathijs Schoffelen - 2013-05-02 07:34:53 +0200

and as far as I know, they are called 'SAM' ;-)

In that case I guess someone already removed the SAM folders and forgot to update the bug on bugzilla. The only sub-directories in the Subject0X folders/zip-files (in /home/common/matlab/fieldtrip/data and ../ftp/tutorial) are hz.ds and hz2.ds, that's why I thought those were the SAM folders. I'll re-add the hz and hz2 folders to the zip-files and I'll change the bug to resolved.
