Hello and good day to all,

I was running a Fluent computation of natural convection flow in a 2-D cylinder, until my computer shut down due to a minor blackout. Is there a way to recover my files or continue the calculation from where it last ended? Or do I just have to initialize again and start over?

I did use the auto save setting (every 1000 time steps).
At this point, I have recovered my mesh and initial setup settings. But it looks as if Fluent won't be able to continue where it last was.

Can anyone please give me any ideas or direction?

Thank you very much.

Autosave should store datafiles somewhere. If you find the latest datafile, you can import that which loads the results from the last autosave. Then, you can work further from the latest autosaved point.

Even if you did not enable autosave case, and only autosave data, you can still continue. The datafile should be compatible with your setup casefile.
