restarting lagrange (particle tracking) simulation

I have a simulation with particle tracking which I need to restart. The solver was stopped abnormally (aka computer crashed), so all I have is a (full) backup file.

Problem is when I try to restart from that, the solver then tells me that no particles are in the domain (even if on POST I can clearly see the particle tracking results).

I also have a lot of .trk files on the same directory, which I assume are related to the particle tracking but I can't seem to use them at all.

Since it's my first time with particle tracking I'm a bit lost: is it simply not possible to restart from .bak files (only from .res) or did I miss something when setting the solver output files?

Thanks in advance! dbdias
