ETABS model became unlocked after crashed (Results files were still in the same folder tho)

ETABS model became unlocked after crashed (Results files were still in the same folder tho)

(OP)
Hi all,

Has anyone of you ever experience a crash that shut down your ETABS model and when you open it again, the model became unlocked? (Note: this crash happens after the analysis has finished). Strangely, when I check the folder where the ETABS result files were saved, all the results files were still there, nothing has changed just the model doesn't want to sync with the results files. Also, I have checked the model name it is matching the name of all results files too.

My model took quite some time to run, so hopefull anyone of you out there has came across with this issue and know a fix to this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Heng

I don't know any way to sync the saved analysis data file into the etabs .edb file. You can run it again, that solves the issue, right?
