autosave and memory

      For the 3D calculation, I did a simulation with autosave every 10 steps but it takes a lot of memory. Is there a way to avoid saving everything and therefore limit the storage capacity (specify variables or time steps to save)

      Hello,


      You can do a couple of things:



      • Make sure you check the option where you are saving only the data file (case file will be saved only when it is altered).

      • You can click on Data Quantities (image from R19.1) and you can pick the variables you want to save.

      • You can also write your case and data files in .cas.gz and .dat.gz format. These are compressed case and data files and can potentially save space.



      I hope this helps.


      Best,


      Karthik
