Hi gmx users!

I am running a 5ns md simmulation of a protein with 2500000 steps. It
crashed at  1360000 steps due to some power problem. Now I want to continue
this simmulation. In the manual following command is given:

mdrun -s topol.tpr -cpi state.cpt

but I am confused which file is state.cpt. I have got two cpt files
md_1_0.cpt and md_1_0_prev.cpt. which one is to be used?
Also I did not get a md_1_0.gro file/ Is is due to incomplete simmulation?

Also do I need to specify  -append flag or not? I am using version 5.1.5

Please need urgent answer.
