Autosave Wrong File Extension (.cas) instead of (.h5)

      Hello,


      I am experiencing some minor issue with my FLUENT software. I am trying to calculate a transient vof-to-dpm setup, and I set an autosave according to the below setting.



      Sadly, ANSYS keeps giving me the below warning, telling me I should save my case files in the CFF (.h5) format, rather than (.cas). I guess this is because I am using a mesh adaptation.


      When I manually export the case files, I have no issue and I can just select CFF, but it seems that when autosaving, ANSYS keeps using the .cas format rather than CFF. Is there any way in which I can adjust the autosave file extension?



       Thanks a lot in advance and have a nice weekend!


      Axel.

      Which Version are you using? Can you verify if file/cff is set to yes?


      I think as you are using WB you cannot do that. This will be possible soon!

      I am using the ANSYS 2020 R1 version. Could you let me know where I can verify if file/cff is set to yes? Can't quite find it.


       


      Thanks a lot!

      Oh I figured it out. It was indeed set to no in the command window.


       


      Thanks for the help!

      Thanks for your comment. I want to add something that I didn't clarify. I am using CFD-Post for the post processing. It doesn't seem to work with any of the extensions in the link, I always get an error or an empty results with no time steps in the manager. n

      CFD Post doesn't read h5 format at 2020R1, check the release notes for R2. It's why Workbench defaults to .cas and Fluent standalone to .cas.h5nn

      Are you working on jet cross flow or spray simulation?n
