The LAADS FTP site continues to experience intermittent errors due to ongoing maintenance on the archive disks. When an archive disk is down, the files on that disk will cause errors if pulled from the FTP site. The files that are temporarily unavailable changes from day to day as archive disks are brought up and down.
To help identify these files, the LAADS Web search has been updated to show the status of files on archive disks that are down as "Temporarily Unavailable". Also, a Current Archive Status page has been created which lists the collections, products, years, and days that are on archive disks that are currently down.
For questions about the LAADS FTP site, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we apologize for the inconvenience.
