Hi Iry,

This should work, I use it regularly.  Just make sure you're not ssh'ed in
and 'in' /mnt/galaxyData or anything like that.  There's not really another
way to do this that I'd recommend trying if you need the instance to
continue working for something tomorrow.

Let me know if you have any issues and I can help.
