Title»File>Share should offer to include a selection of raw files
Assigned To»Brian Pratt
Seems we're forever having to ask folks to send us raw data files in support situations. We should make it easier for them to get this right in the first place. From an email thread:

to me, Skyline
I don't know if we have an issue, but it seems like a reasonable thing to add, a checkbox UI that shows the disk size of the files you are adding. That might be a good addition to the File > Share UI in general, showing the exact files that are going to be included with their uncompressed disk size and possibly their modified timestamp, as well as a total uncompressed size. Great little featurelet for an intern.

Do we already have an issue (I searched, but perhaps badly) that proposes an ability to include a selection of replicate raw data files in File>Share? It seems pretty clear that users expect "and supporting files" to include the raw data, and this is a frequent encountered inefficiency in dealing with support issues.

Can you send us some of your raw files? (Actually, I guess in your case they are .mzML files-- that works too).
