Full Version: attack mode 1 and session restore?

Is there some technical reason or just a bug that prevents me from doing a --session blaha --restore when I created the session with -a 1?
Currently combining the current dictionary and when using --session blaha --restore, it starts all over again.

This is how I ran hashcat: hashcat64.exe -m 2500 -a 1 --session blaha X:\blaha.hccapx X:\wordlist.txt X:\wordlist.txt
maybe you haven't reached a checkpoint yet? How far was the attack?
I don't remember the exact numbers right now but the whole session would have taken a bit over two days to run and I had less than 12 hours left when I cancelled it. If I don't use the combinator attack, I can quit and resume sessions without problems though.
I cannot reproduce this problem with the same hash mode on hashcat 4.2.1 and combinator attack.

$ hashcat64.bin -m2500 --session test /tmp/test.hccapx wordlists/1 wordlists/2 -a1
Session..........: test
Status...........: Quit

$ hashcat64.bin --session test --restore
Session..........: test
Status...........: Running
Hash.Type........: WPA-EAPOL-PBKDF2

I guess hashcat just hadn't reached a restore point yet. Especially with combinaor attack this can take some time. The restore point you see above at 83% was the first and only one I saw in my testing session.

The Restore.Point is always at 0% for me, even when not using the combinator attack but --restore works anyway.
Using hashcat 4.2.1 (x64) in Windows if that can narrow down the problem.
