How to continue analysis when opted for "Solidworks save results up to the current iteration"

Hello everybody,

I have been working on some fairly large assemblies and solidworks simulation is taking days to solve them. So I'd like to leave the machine working through the night then stop the simulation by saving results up in the morning, then resuming them the next night. My problem is that I can never find a way to pick up and continue the simulation from where i left it off. Because of this, I always end up restarting the simulation.

Also, I'm working with assemblies so the contact between surfaces calculation takes a long time to be solved. Can I still save partial results of this stage of the simulation? How can I access them?
