How to transfer files from UNIX to my own Hard drive storage?

I will leave the University I am working, but I need to backup and transfer my research data from UNIX system in our department to my own 750G Hard Drive Storage. But I am not familiar with UNIX. How to do this? Thank you.

To tell you how to do this, we'd have to know a lot more about your setup. Are you connecting to the unix system in the univ. through your own laptop? Or do you have an external hard disk? What OS do you have?

There are too many questions. Why don't you ask the admin in your univ. to help you?

I plan to login in local computer in our lab. to transfer data to external hard disk. The system is Solaris10. I can use SSH to transfer data from UNIX to PC firstly and to my external disk, but I like to know how can I directly transfer data. I would like to figure out by myself before I ask admin.

what your PC OS?
if using windows , just using ftp and in command windows change the directory to your external hardsik and type ftp command from this directory, i thing if now you transfer file,the file default save to your external hardsik..

good luck

What heru_90 is saying is basically correct. Whether you use sftp/scp or ftp to transfer data, just make sure that you 'cd' to a directory on the external hard disk before you run the data transfer.
