Could it > be called another way? For you, the file is supposed to be in john-1.9.0-jumbo-1-win64/run. If you specified an alternative session name with "--session", that will be the filename, with the ".rec" suffix added to it. Why are you looking for that file? Normally, you'd just use "--restore", or alternatively the combination of "--session=NAME" initially and "--restore=NAME" later, where "NAME" is a name of your choice. On "--restore", JtR itself will look for the file in the same directory where it put it. Oh, I now recall you had mentioned you use Johnny. I've never used Johnny for real myself (beyond brief testing), but I suspect it might override the session name or session file location by default. I hope someone with Johnny experience will follow-up and let us all know. Alexander
