Hi Shengjie,

Restart files are very important when some undesirable events occur, such 
as system crash or power shut down. You are able to restart the MD 
simulation from the latest xxx.restart file, do not run the calculation 
from the beginning. So it's better to keep printing them.

If you want to decrease the number of restart file printed during MD 
simulations, you can try to increase the steps between each restart files, 
e.g. print restart files every 1000 steps or other numbers you wish.

Please see the 

               &EACH 1000
          &END RESTART

Good luck,
