Introduction

After image acquisition with the HCS MD ImageXpress you should export and mark your files for deletion from the MD database no longer than 1 month after acquisition. Once marked, we need to manually remove them and thus space is not available immediately. Once exported, tiff files will be available in your data folder for additional 180 days.
