Here post your question

Dear GMX experts,

I performed a MD simulation. After than, I applied -rerun option for specific groups. However, I received an error “WARNING: Incomplete frame: nr 3355 time 33550”.
When I check old discussion on the internet, there is a discussion that I can overwrite the incomplete frame.
If you have any experience, please guide me to overwrite this incomplete frame.

Best regards,

Hi,
It looks that your trajectory file comes from a run that was stopped without having the time to same the whole frame, or if it got corrupted.
Remove the frame from the trj file before performing mdrun -rerun.

Kind regards
Alessandra

Dear Alessandra,

Thank you very much for your kind explanation. I am sorry for asking further. I could not find the frame removing tool information from user guide. Please tell me what kind of tool can I use?

Best regards,
Mijiddorj

You can use eneconv and trjconv for energy and trajectory files, respectively, and save ranges of frames using the -b and -e options to work around a broken frame.
