while it is possible to have your working GSAS files (for example the .EXP file) in a separate directory from the raw data file(s), I discourage this practice as it then becomes quite difficult to later copy or move the .EXP file from one directory or computer to another. For this reason, I suggest copying the data (.RAW) files into the directory where you will create the Experiment (.EXP) file.
For this example, I am working in directory /home/toby/work, and the data files and paramters files are in directory /home/toby/gsas/example, so I copy the Nickel data using UNIX command:cp /home/toby/gsas/example/nickel.raw /home/toby/work/ cp /home/toby/gsas/example/inst_tof.prm /home/toby/work/For Windows I would likely copy the files by dragging their icons between the appropriate folders.
