hello,
i was working on a solution which could take very long time. but it was stopped because my device was full. i wish i do not need to do it from the beginning.
is it possible to continue the solution from the moment which it was stopped?
thx!

Yes, you want to perform a restart run.

At the command line enter "help rdata" to see details.

Yes you can. Go to Navcenter-Analysis Preparation/Running - Analysis (Re) Start..Select standard restart for restart option - apply - write problem file again. Now it will restart from the old iteration. But I think it will not work if u have modified anything in your udf files (if you are using) since the last stop.

Faster than using proSTAR is either one of the following:
  1. edit the 2nd line of the prob file: 1=norestart, 2=restart, 3=new boundary type, 4=new boundary value
  2. Use star -restart or star -norestart for the calculation. See star -help
