RE: [AMBER] ERROR: Could not read coords from {filename}

Would you mind to give us some suggestions about the criterion to choose the last good restart file ? According to your suggestion, we do not need to restart the simulation from the beginning of the whole simulation procedure ?

 Just as you have mentioned, during the long-term simulation we would better turn on the binary restrart file (using "ioutfm" command)? would mind to give us some more detail explaination ?

Thanks very much, and Best regards
