Hello all, I slipped and did a terribly long calculation and then used DumpSave of a variable defined inside a Module. Previous tests of the code were fine, but of course, I was testing outside the Module structure. Now Get doesn't load anything, although the data must be on the file because it is pretty large (>100 MB). I imagine that DumpSave wrote my data along with a temporary variable name in the context that was on at that time, as it was one of the variables inside the Module. So, now when I try to Get it it loads it up somewhere (takes a little time) but then dumps it because the context does not exist anymore...I can see in the files that my variable (originally named phase) has $anumber attached to it, indicating it is a temporary variable. I don't know how to find the context name in the file, let alone how to recreate it. Any ideas on how to recover the data? The variable is a list containing trees (more lists) filled with numbers. Please don't suggest computing everything again as it took a week to do it... Fernando
