Problems continuing calculation

Hello everyone,

I have set up a major study just recently that is very important to me.

Everything seemed fine until yesterday after running the solver for 7 hours, it completed about 30% (which is just fine) I had to move from one location to another so I stopped the solver and saved the results, shut down my PC to continue the calculation today.

I start it all right up, did not touch the model nor anything else, tried to run the calculation and it just wont let me continue from where I left it. The mesh check box is greyed out checked and the continue calculation check box is grayed out not checked. It wants to remesh. Now luckily I backed up the results folder just before I tried the "take previous results" button and discovered that it started the calculation all over which made me mad.

Please someone tell me that those seven hours that I spent yesterday aren't all lost. Is there a way of tricking the solver into thinking that no re-mesh is required perhaps?

I just refuse to believe that Dassault did not think about "continuing calculation after shutdown"..

Thank you for your time.
