The SoLid experiment is a short-baseline neutrino project located at the BR2 research reactor in Mol, Belgium. It started data taking in November 2017. Data management, including long term storage will be handled in close collaboration by Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Imperial College London and Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. We describe the SoLid data management model with an emphasis on the software developed for the file distribution on the Grid, the data archiving and the initial data transfer from the experiment to a Grid storage element. We present results from the first six months of data taking, showing how the system performed in a production setting.
