I have a cif file of a metal organic framework. There is water
coordinated but the XRD generated cif files only has the positions of
the oxygens, not the hydrogens.

Can someone recommend a *free* software which can do a hydrogen adjust
and then a minimisation/optimisation to find the positions of these
hydrogens whilst keeping all the known atoms fixed? Can VMD do this? I
know Materials Studio can do this but I don't have access to this.
