Default sample does not create folder for all times

joel.lehikoinen is on a distinguished road

I'm learning how to use OpenFOAM, and I've started from the tutorials. I encountered a problem in the "Stress analysis of a plate" tutorial ( ). The basic case worked correctly, but when I tried to do the exercises (graded mesh, enlarged plate) sample would create folder only for the initial time.

I changed the tutorial case by introducing a graded mesh for a larger plate (without changing the size of the hole). I mapped the final results of the tutorial case as the initial conditions for my case. To this end, I also changed the simulation time to run from 100 to 200 (with writeouts every 20 steps). If I run sample in the new case directory, it only creates a folder for time 100, even though the printout from sample does show the other times. The printout looks identical to what I get from running sample in the tutorial case directory.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? I understood that I do not need to make any changes to the sampleDict file.
