Use HSI or HTAR under Cygwin in Windows

Cygwin is a package of GNU and open source tools for providing Unix-like functionality on workstations running Microsoft Windows. With Cygwin installed, you can use HSI and HTAR from your Windows workstation to access your account on Indiana University's Scholarly Data Archive (SDA).

You can download and install Cygwin for 32- or 64-bit Windows from the Cygwin Mirror Sites page; for installation help, see the Cygwin Installation page.

For use on personal workstations, IU SDA users can download and install HSI (bundled with its companion program, HTAR) from the UITS Research Storage HSI folder in Box. Bundles are available for 32- and 64-bit Windows, macOS, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and for 64-bit Ubuntu Linux.

If you have questions about using HSI or HTAR at IU, contact the UITS Research Storage team.
