GDCdownload error in TCGAbiolinks


 I was analysing triple negative breast cancer data sets using TCGAbiolinks. I get the following error while running GDCdowload function in Rstudio.

> GDCdownload(query = queryDown, method = “api”,directory = “multiomics”, files.per.chunk = 200)
Downloading data for project TCGA-BRCA
GDCdownload will download: 1.844745499 GB
Executing GDC client with the following command:
C:\Users\Febin\DOCUME~1\MULTIO~1\GDC-CL~1.EXE download -m gdc_manifest.txt
Error in move(i, file.path(path, i)) :
I could not find the file: 95a5d709-7454-4f76-84b0-a505c32baeb5

Could anyone help please? Thanks in advance.

Hi @febinfawaz

This post was moved to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better. This means you’ll get better engagement on your post, and it keeps our Community organized so users can more easily find information.

As you’ll notice, your Topic is now in the [Project Development Help and Advice] board. No action is needed on your part; you can continue the conversation as normal here.

Let me know if you have any other questions or if I can help with anything else.

Thank you so much for your prompt response.  Any updates from the Project Development Help and Advice Team? Do I need to do anything in this scenario?


@febinfawaz Sorry for any confusion. Your post was simply moved to a different board in the Community Forum that makes it more visible to other Community Forum members who may be able to help.

Because your question isn’t directly related to GitHub or a GitHub product, we can’t guarantee a response from a GitHub staff member. For general project questions like this one, we recommend waiting to see if another Community Forum member is able to help or has run into a similar situation before. In some cases, a GitHub staff member might have experience with situations outside of the GitHub product, but we can’t guarantee a response by a GitHub staff member on these kinds of posts. 

Additionally, if you’re actually looking for help with a certain project that’s hosted on GitHub, we recommend referencing the project repo’s README for more information and support. GitHub can’t provide support for specific projects hosted on our site, only for the GitHub product itself.

Now that your post is in the Project Development Help and Advice board, we hope that it will get a little more visibility amongst other users who might be able to help.

Thank you for the clarification. I shall await the response.
