PC shut down automatically, reloading MH draws failed


I was running a program on my desktop in the office the day before, however, due to the stupid automatic update, the computer was shut down without notice. So I have to reload the previous MH draws thanks to the function “load_mh”. But I just figure out only chain 1 has been saved and Dynare gives this error to chain 2

[quote]Error using load
Unable to read file ./basenonlinear_loglinear/metropolis/basenonlinear_loglinear_mh1240_blck2.mat: No such file or directory.

I guess there must be a way to tell Dynare to start from draws [file name]mh1000_blck1.mat and [file name]mh1000_blck2.mat that I have in the folder “metropolis”.

Looking forward to your quick reply. Thank you very much.

This is a tough one. I will look into it, but it will take some time.

Thanks heaps for your attention. Since accidental shutdown is common, I think it would be cool to have an option that can entitle users to choose which draws to start with when Markov chains stop prematurely for any reason.
