I found this one:
Another question I have about using cpt
I know checkpoint is important for continuing simulation, but I didn't know
that we have to use it also from nvt output to npt input and from npt output to
md input ... I was just using the output .gro as input for the next step ... Is
this a fatal mistake?
Checkpoint files are essential for exact continuations. Without them,
you lose thermodynamic state information, precise velocities, etc.
Always use a checkpoint.
If I have to use it then I can use it with grompp -t prev_checkpoint.cpt or
with mdrun -cpi prev_checkpoint.cpt ... Would it be the same result?
You only need to invoke grompp if changing something about the system -
output settings, ensemble, use of restraints, etc. Otherwise, just
extend via convert-tpr and mdrun -cpi.
