What this error "The restart file does not contain enough information and may be corrupt" might be?

When running utilities for an ACBC study, I've got an error in HB: "The restart file does not contain enough information and may be corrupt". Anybody knows what this might be? Tx

The only place that error occurs is in CBC/HB v5.  It means there is a file with the same name as your study with the extension .restart, e.g. "mystudy.restart".  Normally this data is used to continue a canceled run, or to do more iterations if the study has not converged.

It may have been created by ACBC/HB or CBC/HB v4, but it does not contain the correct information for restarting a run in CBC/HB v5.

You should be able to delete the file and estimation will proceed just fine.
