    I on occasion check the folding activity by using the “qd” application. Checking it today I noticed that about 5 of the p921 units were listed as deleted, all in a row? Looking at the log file, it happened at exactly 86% each time, (which is about 8.5 hours into the whopping 23 point unit), a section of part of the log is shown below.

    It is always the exact same “Project: 921 (Run 2, Clone 16, Gen 10)”, unit. Other clones of the p921 have run fine. I ended up deleting both folders (it’s a dual G5), and rerunning the mc68k script, things are running fine now with a p1023 and p355.

    May not hurt to check you log from time to time, I burned about 40 hours for zero points before I noticed the problem.

    Ouch.

    Sorry man.

    I didn't get any of those... Lucky I suppose.

    A few 920's... but no 921's sorry.

    I got several 921s but they all completed.

    I was getting a lot of the small point units that take a long time though. I ended up deleting folding and reinstalling and now it's processing the regular units again.
