How to restore generated data from optimazation that was interruped due to PC shutdown overnight?

      Hello,

      I´m running a direct optimization using ANSYS WORKBENCH/ DesignExplorer, it's a CFD simulation that uses: DM->Turbogrid->CFX, it keeps running until the criteria have converged inputting different geometries. I left it running overnight and then came back to check it, but the PC had shut down, and I can not reopen the files that had been generated until the crash. I can see the original file and another one named file name + pending. I unchecked the "preserve Desing points" box.


      IS THERE A WAY TO RESTORE ALL THE DESIGN POINTS (DATA) THAT THE SIMULATION HAVE RAN?

      Hello,
      Check the WB folder (the location where your simulation was set to), you will have the saved data files there from the previous run.

      I guess ANSYS WORKBENCH doesn't save automatically the simulation, because the file saved date was the last time that I manually saved the simulation, not the time that the PC crashed overnight (don't know what time was it exactly). The pending file thought had a different saved data but was so small that it couldn't contain the results. I restarted the entire simulation anyway, thanks !
