Drop zones:

  • are temporary network folders that have a maximum life span of 3 months;
  • allow you to upload data to the DataHub data management system for persistent storage;
  • can be generated by you as a user by clicking the New drop zone button in the web portal;
  • allow a drag-and-drop experience to copy data from your workstation to the DataHub system;
  • are deleted (including all data in them) after a succesful ingest operation
    The instructions to perform an ingest operation can be found here: Uploading new data (via Drop Zones)

To create a new drop zone, some requirements and general conditions apply, which can be found on this page.



A drop zone is conceptually linked to an Investigation. Please refer to What are investigations? to learn what an Investigation is.
