Iain and Les, thanks for the replies. It's reassuring to know that tasks which ended in computation errors still provided some useful results.

Your replies suggested that a software conflict on my machine had caused at least one of the crashes. Can you give me any more information on that, or tell me where information might be logged on my own system?

I have lost the last 3 work units due to Computation Errors, which has wasted 400+ hours of processing :(

To limit the time lost when such errors occur in future, I'd like to modify my Climateprediction Preferences to focus on applications with the shortest run-times. Can anyone advise me which applications they are?

Incidentally, I don't understand why the software cannot save its state when processing resumes, then revert to those files if an error is encountered. I've read advice about manually backing up work units, but I won't be investing time and effort in that.
