Missing geo_em files by mistake

When I run metgrid I got an error message that says:

Processing domain 1 of 2
ERROR: Couldn't open file ./ for input.

I remember that by mistake I deleted the geo_em.d01 and geo_em.d02 files.
How can I restore them? or maybe can someone send me these files instead compiling everything again?


I don't think it's possible to restore the geo_em files once you remove them.

Regardless, you could simply run geogrid.exe again then rerun (you can skip ungrib.exe if your namelist.wps didn't change) metgrid.exe.
