As of FMRIPREP 1.0.12, the software includes a tracking system
to report usage statistics and errors. Users can opt-out using
--notrack command line argument.
Execution and the BIDS format
fmriprep workflow takes as principal input the path of the dataset
that is to be processed.
The input dataset is required to be in valid :abbr:`BIDS (Brain Imaging Data
Structure)` format, and it must include at least one T1w structural image and
(unless disabled with a flag) a BOLD series.
We highly recommend that you validate your dataset with the free, online

The docker wrapper CLI

Logs and crashfiles are outputted into the

Not running on a local machine? - Data transfer
If you intend to run
fmriprep on a remote system, you will need to
make your data available within that system first.
Alternatively, more comprehensive solutions such as Datalad will handle data transfers with the appropriate settings and commands. Datalad also performs version control over your data.
