If you are afraid of losing files, you can copy the corresponding files out as backup before restarting.
I just tried restart DFPT once, about 2 months ago. I remember just recover = .t. was needed and everything was fine~ How about the error message in your new output file?

Thank you.I hope it works as I definitely do not want to lose the 105 modes..It took 7 days to do that.  But how to re execute the ph.x command..I tried doing the usual:
/.../...../ph.x <GB60.phG.in >GB60.phG.out but it exited. Is there another way to restart the command?

Thanks again

If you specify the right outdir path and prefix name, then the restarted one will definitely begin from 106th mode, since 105 modes have been finished.

Dear all,

I am doing phonon calculations for a large system at the Gamma point (I have 180 irreducible representations (modes) to work out). The server was shut for a day. 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?
