Dear Elie,

In the document Doc/INPUT_PH.txt, variable "recover" is explained clearly:

   Variable:       recover

   Type:           LOGICAL
   Default:        .false.
   Description:    If .true. restart from an interrupted run.

So set it to false in your first run and true in the second and the following runs.

I have used in my input file recover=.true.  I have reached representation 106 before the server broke down. Does it mean that If I executed the command ph.x again, the calculations will start from where it was interrupted?if not, what can i do to not lose what has been done?
