Okay, so I know the SETI@home project has been shut down, due to Arecibo collapsing, and due to having a ton of data to sift through and process. However, I still have a data block that is waiting to be transferred out of my project list. I don't know what to do with it, or how to get it transmitted to who it needs to go to. Yes, I know it's been a while since the SETI@home project closed, but I figured the data block would transmit once it was done processing, and I would not receive any new data blocks. Can someone help me, please?

Thank you!

BOINC relies on two-way communication between your computer and the project's servers to send or receive data. SETI's servers are no longer doing their part of the link and so your computer cannot return that data, which will have been sent out to another user o complete.
The best thing to do is suspend then delete any tasks on your computer.
