If a simulation is actively running, it does not need the files from any 
previous parts.  When starting a continuation run, you need the checkpoint file 
from the previous run and nothing else if using -noappend, which appears to be 
the case here.  Anything that is #file# is a backup of a previous run and is 
never used, but indicates the multiple runs tried to produce the same output 
files.  What that means depends on what you've been doing in the working 
directory (i.e. previous failed attempts, etc).
