Hi Maiti,

Most of the time, the two files will be the same (if the job completes

Could you please suggest me whether is it correct or not, it will be great help for me. prod1 and pord2 are old and new run. is the ABF defined parameter file. From old run, which file do I need to add among the  prod1.colvars.state and prod1-restart.colvars.state files in colvarsInput. Basically two files are same. Do I need to add more files or not.
