interrupt plotting, what now?
I am bussy to plot my 2TB HD.
First at 80% my HD was interrupt and later again.
If that happens again is there a way to continue from where it was before.

@penoze sorry I'm not sure what are you talking about, may you be a bit more clear please
Alright i shall try.
I was plotting my external harddrive on my desk with my laptop.
My wife though this laptop is slow.
She pull the cable out of my laptop while i was plotting :p
Later my daughter did the same
Is there a way to restore to where i was.
The last times i formatted my external harddisk and started over again.
Almost same issue :).
I shall follow that post.

No, you cannot continue from where you left off. You will have to start all over.
okay that was clear :).
was hoping there was a solution for that :).
@penoze what software did you use to plot the drive? The latest Xplotter allows you to start back where the last write was interrupted
i use the wallet.
Saw another topics about Xplotter.
I need to learn how to start it up:).
It's not simple dubble click on an icon
Read already something about it and i must start it up in another way.
My harddrive is now plotted 25% again
Hope it will continue whitout interrupting next days

Bad luck again
My laptop did a restart last night.
1,2TB is plotted and i am mining right now.
Can i use now Xplotter to go further with plotting?
@penoze yes, but you'll have to slightly change the parameters in the batch file.
If you go to the xplotter thread, @Blago has a guide on how to use the software.
In brief, you'll need to know at how many nonces were created for your interrupted plot, this can be found in the plot's file name. This number of nonces will need to be input into the "-n" parameter for xplotter (by editing RunThisAsAdmin.bat by right clicking and selecting edit), along with your starting nonce (-sn). If you get all that figured out, then just run the edited "RunThisAsAdmin.bat" with admin rights and it should start off where it left off.
I know this is kind of a quick synopsis and if you don't have much experience it might be a bit of a challenge to figure out but you should be able to get it. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Okay just do it again :p
Never had such bad luck with mining but i never give up.
So the best thing to do is format the harddrive again and start over.
And command the laptop that he will never shut down without my permission
@penoze haha yeah make sure it doesn't shut down. I always had a problem with Windows 10 Home and active hours if that's what you're using.
But also, if you started the plot with xplotter, which is included with the new AIO, you can get it to restart where it left off.
i have NRS version 1.2.7 as AIO
Is that the good one that i can restart.

@penoze which wallet version are you on? you should be able to find xplotter in this folder under your computer's username:
Where can i see that
i am searching.
Meanwhile i am playing with Xplotter and i just renamed the plot.
@penoze you can see it at the top of your wallet's window. But if you have the newest AIO wallet version, xplotter should be in the folder I listed above
@k.coins version 0.3.7
@penoze ah ok. I think that one had wplotgenerator instead of xplotter - you might just have to start over again then.
Sorry for your bad luck!

@penoze You might consider splitting your HD into 2 or more plot files if you have plenty of restarts happening
