Genome finishing and working with shared data

When running tools from the CLC Genome Finishing on data located on a shared system, such as a CLC Genomics Server or a shared file location, some precautions have to be taken. The following tools modify existing objects instead of outputting new objects, which means that two users cannot work concurrently on the same objects.

If an object is being modified while another user is accessing or modifying it, the result is often an error but in some cases the result can be undefined. In the worst case scenario the object will become corrupted and cannot be used for further analysis.
