I'm running a transient simulation in CFX and ran out of disk space half way through the solution. I could restart the analysis from the back up file after clearing the space. However, in CFX post, the results file only shows the timesteps after the restart even though the individual timestep transient solution files are available. Prior to the interruption, the transient files were written but not the results file till the space ran out. Is there a way to view the result in CFX post from starting timestep 0 (prior to the crash) all the way to the end (after restarting)? solution converged without any issues after restart. Thank you!

When writing partial transient results files, if the model crashes at some point during the calculation, only a full backup or a full transient file can read the partial transient files up to the time step reflected in the full backup or full transient file. Any partial transient files written after the last full back up or full transient file cannot be used, unfortunately.

I did have a full back up and used it to complete the solution. My problem is accessing the timestep data prior to crash in CFX post using the full back up. I can only see the timesteps after I restarted in cfx-post. I want to create an animation from time 0 to end, not from some arbitrary timestep where I had to restart. Thank you.

When you load in the CFX .res file into CFD-Post that used the backup solution file as the initial values file, on the "Load Results File" panel, select "Load complete history as: A single case". This will display all the transient files from the previous run (up to the backup) and the transient files from the current run in the Timestep Selector.
If you use the default setting "Load only last results", it will only show the transient files generated in the current run.

Thank you!! I was worried I have to re-run....
