Due to an error that must have occurred 5 days ago, (the reason of which I cannot trace back) BOINC manager on my machine is scheduling more than a hundred gamma-ray pulsar searches, but only 21 LATeah2xxx.dat files are listed in the BOINC manager's folder "projects\einstein.phys.uwm.edu". The only message in the log file that I suppuse to match the event is as follows:

19-MAR-2012 15:38:11 [Einstein@Home] Task LATeah2225A_96.0_3000_-4.4e-11_2 exited with zero status but no 'finished' file
19-MAR-2012 15:38:11 [Einstein@Home] If this happens repeatedly you may need to reset the project.

In fact it repeated three times, which suggests to reset the client. What will be the consequences if i do so? I suppose the client to loose every work unit it was sent already. Does my machine have to expect further consequences or even disadvantages? Will it be regarded as less reliable?

Resetting the project

Don't reset the project due to this message! It's total rubbish.
