Dear Seibold:

Maybe this is due to your low network connection which will be down when
network transfer is very busy? Data could not be recorded in your rst file
any more when your network is down. And the network is very probably to
come back to work after a few seconds so that the simulation is still on
calculating and you could not aware of it. If this is your case, I believe
you'll have to restart your calculation from the latest usable rst file.
==== your error message =======
forrtl: severe (64): input conversion error, unit 9, file
