The JupyterLab file browser allows you to double click on a file to open it. Unfortunately this means loading the whole file into the browser. For netCDF files this is not practical (these files can be several Gb), so we kill the transfer to prevent the file from loading. Unfortunately this brings up the following error message. You can safely ignore the error message and move on. The creators of Jupyterlab are aware of the problem and are implementing a solution for big files.
