Recent hardware reconfiguration caused some of my tasks to report as errors. Is there a way I can restart or resubmit them?

No, once they are marked as errors they must be reported as such, but it's OK. The project is built to accommodate that, and it's much better they get reported so that they can get re-sent to someone else immediately than being lost and timing out in a month or so.


Edit: If you think you have actual lost "ghost" tasks this thread may be useful.

Thanks for your response. What is the best way to report errors? Lost power yesterday and have a few more errors. I haven't been able to determine if some are ghosts or not. Thanks again.

The BOINC client will take care of the error reporting on its own. To re-send any missing "ghost" tasks you can follow the process I linked below.
