Well in my *log file nothing about state or *cpi files is mentioned.
Acutally I have a question regarding state.cpi files. Does it contain names
of *gro, *trr, etc. files if they are not standard?
The thing is, that output files from my first 5ns simulation are not
standard. Now, I perform these calculations not in my working directory but
on separate scratch.
In this case, should the output files from previous simulation be present
in the scratch?
And when I run another 5 ns should I run mdrun with those -c -o and -e
options? If yes, should the names of files be the same as in the previous
