Dear Gromacs Users,

 Please help me to recover my important log file from swap file, How can I
do this?
I am wondering wheather I can get my original file or not.
Found a swap file by the name ".md2.log.swp"
          owned by: anamika   dated: Wed Apr 16 04:21:09 2008
         file name: ~anamika/MD/cm_A/test/md2.log
          modified: no
         user name: anamika   host name: cdfd-grid-node16
        process ID: 29468 (still running)
While opening file "md2.log"
             dated: Thu Mar 20 16:09:42 2008

(1) Another program may be editing the same file.
    If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
    different instances of the same file when making changes.
    Quit, or continue with caution.

(2) An edit session for this file crashed.
    If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r md2.log"
    to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
    If you did this already, delete the swap file ".md2.log.swp"
    to avoid this message.

Swap file ".md2.log.swp" already exists!
[O]pen Read-Only, (E)dit anyway, (R)ecover, (Q)uit:

Thanks in advance
